Winter and early Spring can feel like a grim sentence in Ireland, especially as we ride out an exceptionally wet couple of months.
Yet, on occasion the slow change of the season makes itself felt with a longer, dry day and beautiful skies.
The one thing about being on the edge of the Atlantic is we get amazing cloudscapes at times and wonderful sunsets.
And even when storms threaten, the view can be both awe-inspiring and scary.
Nature can be a terrible beast, but sometimes she kisses you gently after your mauling.
