He wishes for the cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths

Enwrought with golden and silver light

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Of night and light and the half-light

I would spread the cloths under your feet

But I, being poor, have only my dreams

I have spread my dreams under your feet

Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams!

W B Yeats

The magnificent Giants Causeway


The Giants Causeway -  10 x 12" Oil on Board
The Giants Causeway – 10 x 12″ Oil on Board

The Giants Causeway  lies at the foot of the basalt cliffs located in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.  It is one of those places I had heard about, and read about so many times.  It went on my list of “must-see” attractions.

The Giants Causeway was included on the World Heritage site list in November 1986.

It is said that to walk along The Giants Causeway is like a voyage back in time.  There are many colour coded walking trails to guide you in order to take in the magnificent scenery and wildlife.

 

 

The Giants Causeway

 

It is made up of some 40,000 massive black basalt columns sticking out of the Atlantic ocean.

 

 

Geological studies of these formations over the last 300 years have greatly contributed to the development of the earth sciences.  They show that this striking landscape was caused by volcanic activity during the Tertiary, some 50-60 million years ago.

The dramatic sight has inspired legends of The Irish Giant Fionn mac Cumhaill striding over the sea to Scotland.

There are many other visitor attractions close by that are worth a visit, like the famous Carrick a Rede rope bridge and the Dark Hedges

It was a pleasure to witness the majesty of The Giants Causeway and the  Atlantic coastline with its unique rock formations full of intrigue and mystery.

Please like and share if you  enjoyed this little  insight too!

Sorting the Nets

Fishermen gather round – they sort the fishing nets as they prepare for the evening catch!

Frequent travels to the west coast of Ireland are always a pleasure.

No matter what time of year I visit, there is always something different to see, a different light, changing hues, and the wild Atlantic continues to battle its way to our shores.

Visits to wonderful coastlines such as Dogs Bay and Gurteen just outside the picturesque small fishing village of Roundstone, Co. Galway are particularly special.

This painting is a reflection of one of those special moments  when I saw fishermen assemble to prepare for the evening catch – the silhouettes against the evening sky create a touch of mystery!
