Connemara: In the footsteps of Charles Lamb

After spending a weekend in Carraroe, I can see why the artist Charles Lamb spent his life there painting scenes of everyday folk working in Connemara.

I spent time by Loch an Mhuilinn (Mill Lake) which was stunningly beautiful and very peaceful. It was brilliant to be able to climb down to the lakeside, due to it being very low after a Summer of drought in Ireland, and listen to the waves lapping the shore.

Here's a few pics I captured over the weekend:
