St. Peters

St. Peters portal in Drogheda loogind sideways up with blue sky on the right hand side of picture

I got a little shock when Aafke commented earlier she was hoping for a new picture here and I saw the last post is two months ago.
I hope to go back to more frequent updates now. (I know I said similar before)

But to talk about this picture:
Today is summer solstice. Which involves two things: It is summer, there is sun and therefore it should be a lovely mild long day. Somehow that doesn’t work in Ireland this year at all. So far there was hardly a day without rain. And today was one with heavy rain. Yesterday evening I even switched on the heating again.

But Saturday week we were very lucky with our photowalk in Drogheda. We had a day full of sunshine between days of rain. So we spent some time on the stairs outside St. Peter’s Church enjoying the sunshine and the icecream. But with a camera always in your hand you tend to look around from time to time so I happened to stand sideways to the church and looked up to see this angle which I liked.

It’s one of my favourite pictures of the day, especially on a rainy day like today.
