Wow!!!!!!!!

Oh, and WOW!!

Always wanted to go to Connemara in the winter, I love going home to the Mournes over xmas as the mountains always look so good in the crisp cold.

Now if you could just get a Transalp infront of that wee boat (probably pushin the boat out here if your cbrpaddy for that reason) oh and excuse the pun...

Superb pictures paddy and well done you for getting out on yer bike. Though I have to say, you seem to have less snow than we have just now.
Rode into work this morning, -10 according to the car drivers, and packed snow on the back roads :rolleyes:! All I know is that even my visor Pin Lock insert was freezing over this morning! Ended up with about 3 inches of clear visor by the time I got into town (daren't open the visor - have you ever tried to get frozen booggers off of yer chin?)
Maybe I should start using the amount of internal freezing on the insert as some sort of temperature gauage!

Again, great pictures :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

so, cbrpaddy wins the compettition for "how many desktop's can you fit into a single ride report"...

those are some corking pics man!:thumbright:
Ha! Brilliant pictures, first thing I did was to download the one of the trees reflecting in the ripple free lake with the snow covered mountains behind.
It is my current desktop and has allready drawn comments from others.

Where exactly is this please. It has to be added to my list of places to go.

Thanks

It's actually right alongside the main Galway-Clifden road, perhaps 10-15 miles from Clifden town itself. You can't miss it :D

Unfortunately though there are some powerlines running by the trees which aren't visible in the low-res pic, damn muppets.

Well done Paddy, go raibh maith agat.
Fantastic pictures. It's where I love to go since I was a child to re-charge the batteries. Normally around Carna. Your photos remind me of the covers of Walter Macken's books, the actual photo that Traveller picked as a favourite was, in an almost identical view used for the cover of his book The Coll Doll. If I was young enough and clever enough with this pooter I'd put one of those link thingies in to show the cover of the book on Amazon, but alas, age dictates :(
Thanks again.

Thanks, the details are now in my places to go book. I am doing the Run for the Sun next June. After that I was thinking of making my way from Dingle, up the coast to Doolin and then on to Galway. The to N69 and Clifden look like the next stage of the plan then on to Sligo.

Thanks again for the info and pictures.

Glad you liked them Chrisb. I've had a gander on Amazon and found the cover, damn plagiarists, how dare they :D Amazon.co.uk: Walter Macken: Books

No bother. That sounds like a great trip you have planned too :thumbright:
Btw... I've bunged up a high-res version of that lake if you want it...

Only just caught up with them myself. They are fantastic. I think my fave is this, with the silhouette of the 'bended tree'. Love it :thumbup:



Now, if you could just find a way of sticking an Africa Twin in there without ruining the pic, it would be a definite for next year's calendar....

It's a Canon EOS500, but I still haven't got a clue how to use it properly. Work away on printing, that's what they're for :thumbright:

I was out near Carna there recently, lovely area, though Cork isn't bad either, I did a bit of it last summer for the first time and was well impressed.
