Leenaun, Aasleagh Falls and White Strand – Welcome to Co. Mayo

This post will have almost no text. I just wanted to share my pictures from a day in Connemara, Ireland. Most of the time pictures of landscape do not give the impressions of space and magnitude so treat it as teaser rather than faithful representation of reality.

Connemara is situated at the very edge of Europe, on the west coast of Ireland, and is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt places I’ve seen in Europe.

Beautiful Aasleagh Falls is situated near Leenane in the heart of Connemara. The waterfall featured in a scene from the movie ‘The Field’ which was written by John B. Keane. The story was adapted for the big screen by Jim Sheridan in 1990 and starred the late Richard Harris.

Yes this is me scaring away the birds which you can’t really see.
