Wicklow Mountains and the Monastic Ancient City of Glendalough

Stunning Irish Countryside – Wicklow Mountains

Heading into the Wicklow Mountains the spectacular colors, brooks and lakes surprised at every turn.

Set in the stunning beauty of the Wicklow Mountains, the medieval, monastic Glendalough ruins were founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century. 

Glendalough Monastery

Babbling brooks, colorful back ground of trees and mist and a feeling of serenity enveloped me as I walked over the bridge and through the double arched entrance- which signified the transition onto a sacred site.

What I was most fascinated with was the images – visible upon downloading the photos – so many orbs… and now I am super curious about the origins of them. Not a day for reflected light- as it was a dark drizzly afternoon.
