Our Celitc Tiger motorway from Waterford to Dublin, the M9, bypasses Thomastown, Kilkenny, Carlow and all the narrow villages we used to know so intimately. Unfortunately it’s also now against the rules of the road to stop and photograph the landscape.
This part of Ireland has it’s own story; gentle rolling hills, the flat plains of the midlands, and lots of old trees. A journey through an inland maze of fields, all sky and agriculture.
So on this eerie early morning road trip, I shot these frosty trees and fog as the sun came up, just because I was a passenger and for once and I could…..
Thank you so much to everyone who shopped here in the Foxglove Lane Studio over Christmas. While it was a very busy time it was also good to connect with so many of you who are becoming like old friends at this stage! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, it has been very encouraging.
I’m having a short SALE at the moment and while the hardback book is still available you can now get the download version of the book here here reduced to 1.99 euros.
In other news I have just begun to sell a new range of Limited Edition Fine Art Prints Each one is a result of layering paintings, textures and photographs and is something I hope to explore much more in 2015.
Here’s to a fresh New Year!
I remember this road when we went from Waterford to Dublin….sad you cannot stop and take pictures of the loveliness. Glad you were able to Catherine.
Thanks Donna, where there is a will there's a way! I am forever dodging a bullet in this regard. Sometimes I can't help myself and take the nearest exit. But there is nothing like being a passenger to catch the things that I constantly see but can't record.

Against the rules?! how sad … I'm sure glad you were a passenger this time, lovely trees!
