Cruising along N59 in County Galway, we came across this beautiful view, just outside of the village of Letterfrack. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about Ireland. I really believe I could live there, at least for a few months out of the year. It’s really hard to put words to how magical this country is. Of course, America is absolutely amazing and offers endless beauty. And, though I may be a little biased, I think Michigan is second to non when it comes to our beaches and sunsets. But, there is just something about Ireland that I love.
I think it’s a combination of geography, history and culture. That sounds kind of cliche but it’s true. Plus, the people of Ireland are just amazing. By no means do I consider myself an expert on Ireland. I have only been there twice. But, I can say without a doubt that I will be there many more times. So far one of my favorite places is what the Irish call Connemara, a region located in County Galway.
In March Becky and I will be exhibiting our photographs from last May’s trip to Ireland at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts. I also plan on exhibiting my prints in Art Prize 2012 in Grand Rapids.
