I have been working in Tuam Co. Galway on and off for the last few years and one of the pleasures of the journey to Tuam is passing through Claregalway. As you cross the river Clare a newly restored tower house dominates the road and a Franciscan friary with a fabulously preserved east window can be seen on the banks of the river. As I passed that familiar stretch of road last week the sun was just setting on what was a lovely clear evening. I was compelled to stop and try and capture the view towards the friary with the sun setting in the background. The light was changing rapidly and the colours from the sun were reflected off the clouds and river. I took a series of Photographs which can be seen over on my Flickr photostream. I’m not sure I captured the stunning beauty of the scene but it was fun trying.
