As we all experienced on this Sunday, 29th Nov. 2020 a Foggy Day in Millstreet Town (!) it was quite a different story on the wonderful heights of Bealach area above Ballydaly. And we’re most fortunate that some six superb images have been shared by Mary, Dan and John O’Riordan of Ballydaly where we note a beautiful sunny day above the fog which gives the impression that one is almost observing the sea below the trees and fields. Sincere thanks to our Friends for sharing. Tap on the images to enlarge. (S.R.) More splendid images to follow later. [read more …] “Spectacular Bealach Images Above the Fog Today”
