Irelands Southwest and West (Part 4)

Sunday, September 29th, 2019

Part 4 of our 2017 trip through Irleands South­w­est and West.

Leav­ing The Bur­ren and Doolin (and the Cliffs of Moher, but that’s anoth­er … more digit­al … story) behind us, we headed north to touch Gal­way, the beau­ti­ful old town lay­ing on our way to Con­nemara County.

Gal­way … with some typ­ic­al Irish pub :)

From Gal­way it was a short, but nev­er­the­less beau­ti­ful ride to Clif­den — our final stay in the west.

Dog’s Bay and Gur­teen Bay — two nice beaches lay­ing vis-á-vis on a spit of land.

The tiny vil­lage of Round­stone, with its ceram­ics and craft shops.

Up to the Skyroad (giv­ing its unique driv­ing exper­i­ence), driv­ing by cloud covered hills and …

… hav­ing a fant­ast­ic look from the Wild Atlantic View­point.

… still more ana­log work to come.

Earli­er parts of this series can be found here.

In case you’d like to com­ment, it’s appre­ci­ated … and maybe, you want to vis­it my web­site or my flickr page too.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.

 

A Nikon F‑301 travelling Ireland

Over­ture

Mid 2017 we made a two week trip through Ire­land. Motiv­ated by Jim Grey from Down the Road who made sev­er­al won­der­ful posts about his jour­ney in 2016, I tried to get hands on an old ana­log Nikon F‑301 cam­era with a 35mm lens attached. I packed five rolls of Agfa Vista 400 to feed the Nikon and packed … guess what .… my Work­horse as an every­day backup togeth­er with its fant­ast­ic M.Zuiko 12–40mm PRO lens.

 

 

You can find the Agfa Vista 400 col­our ver­sion and a black & white ver­sion of all images here … I will add them in my cur­rent Ire­land series over the next days and weeks.

After this, in a second series, the digit­al res­ults will fol­low.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.
