Cloonshecahill, fog and a full moon, Co Galway

Cloonshecahill means Cathal's faerie meadow, this is the faerie tree in the village as can be seen there is a full moon and some fog. Apparently you can only see the faeries if you sit on a handmade 3 legged Ash stool under the tree at midnight. this is the Dunkellin River in the fog on a full moon

Wow. Love the atmosphere in these; the two last ones in particular.

Is this the same faerie tree as the one in the next post? Guess I should have read this post before I asked about the tree in the comment there! :)

reminded me of some of the impressionists paintings, nothing as surreal walking over a footbridge in the fog in a fullmoon

I don't know the first thing about painting and painting styles I'm afraid. Any particular paintings you had in mind?

OMG, these are fantastic. Very striking images. The third from the top especially is absolutely beautiful. It should be on a postcard. :-)

findabair, sorry only noticed your comment here when Leisha commented, Monet painted Waterloo Bridge using restricted colours, he concentrated on light like all impressionists.

Leisha, thanks madam
