January Landscapes

A rainbow streak in the cloudy sky over the Boggeragh Mountains in County Cork.

I have been quite busy recently and struggling to keep up with my photography. I have hundreds of photos on the back burner waiting to be edited from my European trip last autumn. And probably many more from around home too.

It is almost mid March now and it's hard to believe Spring is almost here. Today has been a real rain-snow-and-sunshine kind of day. It's been like a constant cycle of different forms of precipitation, wind and sun. It snowed a little last week too, to me it definitely still feels like winter. Even as I wrote these few short paragraphs the weather changed from sunny to rainy to blizzard and back to sunshine again.

For today's post I have selected some landscape photographs I captured in the Boggeragh Mountains in January over the last few years. The common themes across the board were moon rises and rainbows as my archive shows.
