No doubt there are more beautiful places on earth, but on days like this, with company like this, I can’t think of any.
Took the dogs up for a walk in Balrath Woods a week or so ago. It was about 5pm on a Sunday afternoon and normally there’d be a good few people wandering around there. Not this time. Just Mimi, Pippa and Rosa. And me. And the trees.
We get a lot of fog and heavy mist out in Meath. Sometimes you can’t see 10 feet in front of you. And it can seem like the whole country is in the soup, but then you drive out of it on the approach to the M50 and it’s all clear. Here’s a few shots…
I love living in Meath, with the countryside all around me. Yes. There are considerable advantages to living close to work, but none that outweigh the opportunity to walk five minutes from home and be completely alone with miles of empty fields to wander.

We got in a quick walk last night, just as it was getting dark. The dogs had a great time, running around, chasing each other, smelling smells and splashing in puddles.
Happy dogs, out and about. Along with photography, walking the dogs is one of my favourite reasons to get out in the fresh air. Mimi and Pippa don’t care what the weather’s like and they don’t care where we are – it’s always a good time for a walk. As it turned out, the weather…
