After 10 or 12 years, I made the trip back to a part of Ireland called The Burren in County Clare Ireland. A limestone landscape, it is a photographers playground, and I can tell you now it won't be 10 years before I return. 

As is normal in this part of the world the weather is changeable, and on this particular day I got soaked waiting out a passing shower, in the hope that some light would pop through. 

You can get a feel for this area on the video I made on my youtube channel, https://youtu.be/UpL2Gv5Oe0w

If you are ever over this way, be sure to check it out.

Amazing light and rainbow. Looks like pretty rough country. Reminds me that I seem to recall an Irish tune called "On the Burren".

There is a similar limestone landscape in Yorkshire, which I should get to. This might just give me the nudge I need to get out there. A beautiful image with some great light and mood and of course the rainbow.

I think it's about 14 years since I was there - wow! Love the rainbow.
