Spotted late Friday night while waiting for the dog to empty its bladder! A Moon halo, also known as a 22 degrees halo. Took a few photos, but by the fourth, the halo had pretty much disappeared.
Tintern Abbey is located on the Hook Peninsula, Co. Wexford. It’s a beautiful place to visit any time of the year, but late spring / early summer is particularly enjoyable because the air is filled with the aroma of wild garlic growing along the riverbank – and of course the trees and flowers are in full bloom!
The grounds are located away from main roads, and with no traffic noise it’s a great place to ramble away a few hours on or off the beaten tracks.
A recent addition to the location is the opening of Colclough Walled Gardens, which has been under restoration for a number of years.
In the coming days/weeks I will post more images taken in and around the Abbey itself, and along the banks of the forest river….
Here’s a little teaser:
