Ring of Kerry mountains rivers and lakes

here are more pictures of the Ring of Kerry, as I said in an other post I have others to post of ruins, the Ring runs 170km in the south west of Ireland. If taking the drive all the coach tours travel in an anticlockwise direction to avoid traffic jams on narrow roads, so cars should go in a clockwise direction, so they don't get caught behind the buses This is the lake south of Killarney South of Killarney one of the most beautiful drives in Ireland Bridge in Killorglan (great B&B beside the bridge), this little town crowns a goat as high king for one week in the summer. The goat is hoisted up in a tower and presides over the festival for the week.

I'm kind of surprised by the colour of the landscape in some of these photos; it looks so very dry! Is this usually what it looks like in the autumn, do you know? It occurs to me that I wouldn't know myself, since I have never been to Ireland in the autumn before :)

Findabair, I agree, it does look very dry. But at the same time there seems to be a good bit of water (rivers &c). So ... odd. I can't believe you've never been to Ireland in the autumn! How very remiss of you!! :-o

Sorry thought I replied to this, (damn mobile broadband)
Findabair, I lay prostate at your feet for trying to slip this one past you. These pictures were taken just before I set up the blog. Where I am at the moment is not the most photogenic so I thought I would sneak these in. Hanging my head in shame.
but as Leisha said in her post the scenery has not changed since then.
