Miscellaneous Mondays.. Glendalough, Wicklow Ireland

Irish Archaeology are currently running a photography competition. This sent me looking through my archive and I entered the first of these three images.

Glendalough is the site of a 6th century monastic settlement and a place of great beauty. The name comes from the Irish language meaning the valley of two lakes. It’s set in a glacial valley in the Wicklow mountains.

Not surprisingly it was a misty day when I visited but it almost enhanced the beauty. I am in no way religious but there certainly is something very spiritual about the.
