Day 5 ( the beginning )

An early morning view at the Twelve Pins mountain range with a Pine Island in the center of the image. Connemara. Ireland.

A story behind: Day 5 was definitely the best day of our Irish adventure. I woke up as an early-birdy, packed my gear, said hello to a half asleep lady at the hotel´s reception desk and drove to a Pine Island. Pine Island is one of the most magnificent spots overlooking the steep-sided Twelve Pins mountain range.

As as approached the spot dark clouds were beginning to pour out from the plane skimming the mountain tops and flooding them with a wave of mist and darkness. It was an impressive start of a new day.

Location: Ballinafad, Ireland.
