I will admit that these were not taken this week, because of the weather. Gives me an excuse to put up older pics I took. This is the sunrise in Buttevent in Cork, this could be one of the last picture of a summer sunrise from this location as there are plans to bring the new Limerick to Cork motorway across the middle of this lovely view. This is the Black lake along the mountain pass in the Beara peninsula. I am not sure if it because of the fact it is shadowed by the mountains or that the land tends to be peat that it gets its name. While driving past the black lake I was following a German tourist that braked suddenly at the top of the mountain pass, when I got there I saw the reason, there was a huge drop away and the road meandered down the mountain following the contours of the landscape. This is further south along the peninsula, this is what the Sat nav picked as the quickest route, it was just slightly better than a dirt road. There was also nowhere to let oncoming traffic though.
