Grossen Dank, Christian! Dein selten verliehener goldener Stern ehrt mich sehr! :) Was mich heute noch immer erstaunt, der Standort vieler Fotos war derselbe und oft auch in denselben Minuten und doch zum Teil ganz unterschiedliche Stimmungen. Teilweise habe ich auch etwas unter den Bildern dazugeschrieben.

Herzliche Grüsse, May

Love the clouds and the colors.

Thank you Ralph! Nice to meet you!

Greetings from Switzerland, May

Dick Vogel on October 25, 2007

Hi May! You seem to have a never ending collection of shots from Ireland with wonderful, cloudy, skies! People in Holland sometimes speak of 'Dutch skies'. I think that nowhere you can see more beautiful 'Dutch skies' then in Ireland... Your pictures prove I'm right! Greetings, Dick.

Margrit M. Berger (S… on October 25, 2007

Hello Dick! Yes and I have still some more. You see, I have so many photos, because I went alone on this trip and thus haven't been detained by someone begging me to leave and go on and look for a room or other unimportant things. ;) I was really free to stay as long or as short as I wished and I could fully concentrate on enjoying the scenery and taking photos.

In England they call those clouds "Constable Clouds" after the painter. :)

Were you on Achill Island too?

Many greetings, May

Dick Vogel on October 25, 2007

Hi May! Unfortunately I never was on Achill Island, I never got further north then Connemara (Clifden). Clouds of this kind were also painted by the Dutch and Flamish 'masters' of the 17th century. Greetings, Dick.

Hallo May.

Gratulation zur Irland-Serie.

Ich denke wer tolle Fotos mit Wolken machen will muss unbedingt diese Insel besuchen.

Viele Grüße. Alfred

Margrit M. Berger (S… on October 28, 2007

Dick, probably you have similar clouds. But I think you understand that English persons wouldn't call THEIR clouds after a Flamish master! ;))

Greetings, May

Vielen Dank, Alfred für deinen Besuch und Kommentar!

Ja, wundervolle Wolkenstimmungen gibt's wirklich in Irland. Von den ca. 400 Photos, die ich bisher hochgeladen habe, gibt's kaum eine, wo nicht wenigstens ein Stück Wolke zu sehen war. Ganz so, wie ich's mag.

Herzliche Grüsse, May

I love the bright sand and the dark clouds! What a lovely day you had there, and thank you for sharing it with us.

Margrit M. Berger (S… on November 3, 2007

Thank you Nawitka, for visiting my collection and for your words! Yes, I was lucky that evening with the weather and I am grateful for it. The other day it rained a lot, so I went on on my trip. But I returned last summer. I love these places away from the tourist's road.

Greetings, May

Nice one. Merry X-Mas

Margrit M. Berger (S… on December 18, 2007

Neim Sejfuli, thank you very much for your comment and greetings. Happy holiday and New Year to you as well!

Ah, the Mayo coast is similar to the Chatham Islands coast at Waitangi West beach. Cheers, Tony

Margrit M. Berger (S… on April 5, 2008

Thank you Tony! Achill island is one of my most favourite places. I mean it's not only the coast, but the people, their history, the solitary geographical position, the bogs, turf, houses, the dangerous wild sea tearing at the rough cliffs, the sands, the wild flowers, the poetry, the dramatic mise en scène of nature and many things more, which make me love this unique place - though I am from a landlocked country. :-)


Vasek Kadlec on July 1, 2008

With such a view in front of you, you simply have to be happy just for being able to be a part of it. That's truly a great shot, thanks for sharing it.

Margrit M. Berger (S… on July 2, 2008

Thank you very much, Vasek Kadlec, for your nice comment! You are right, I enjoyed this sight greatly. The view kept changing from minute to minute.


Vasek Kadlec on July 3, 2008

Being in this place, I could spend there all day :) Really cool!

Margrit M. Berger (S… on July 5, 2008

Achill Island is a very special place. I could stay there too for a long time, but a raincoat is recommended, because you never know, when there will be some sudden rain. ;)
