  3. This is REALLY making me want to hurry up and use my 150,000 miles and BAir and get back over there. I miss it sososososoooooooo much. These stone walls remind me especially of the ones of the Aran Islands. I can still remember my best friend and I going over to one of them on a boat names the “Happy Hooker.” I really do like this shot. Drove into fire area and it is still smoldering and smoke us rising after a day and a night of rain, but it looks like the damage is over. Thank heavens we all had no loss of homes or animals. genie

  4. Beautiful - I love the way the wall zig-zags down the hillside giving shelter to the sheep and defining the boundaries. Then I think of all the man-hours which went into the construction!

  7. Stone fences are something I don't see often, but always look ancient and filled with mystery and stories. Love the perspective of your shot.

  14. amazing stone walls in Wales. Makes me remember trying to drive through wales with my husband.... all of a sudden trying to drive on "the wrong side of the road", with a wall of rocks 2 inches from your driving mirror. Very tricky. Lovely photo!

  21. I spent a few minutes looking around at all your blogs. I am amazed! Four blogs! How do you do it? I find it overwhelming to manage one! LOL You seem to have traveled far and wide. I have only been to Whales once, and then just overnight. One day I would love to go back.

  30. It's hard for me to imagine how long it must have taken to make this wall!

    ReplyDelete
  31. These are quite amazing! There is so much skill and hard work expended to make these (I know because I have tried repairing one of these walls in Greece)!

  32. Stone walls as the boundary in the pastoral area is almost unseen in my country. Looks very exotic to me, and of course beautiful.

    Thank you for your comment.
    I have daily looked into your blog, but can see that you have not created anything in the last week.

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
