Photo Gallery: Remembering Ireland

We returned from Ireland a month ago, and the memory is still fresh for me. I vividly recall the smells, the colors, the wind, rain, and stone. Ireland presents a freshness and ancientness that my photos only hint at. If you ever travel there, be sure to meet the people, enjoy the food (and Guinness), see the sights, learn the history, and above all, enjoy each unhurried moment.

This is my final installment of Irish photo memories—a mix of new photos and some favorite moments in the order they were taken. I hope you enjoy them.

Photo Gallery: Relishing Ireland

I dream of taking my entire family—kids and grandkids—on a tour of Europe. I know there are lots of places to see in this world. But, for some reason it’s Europe that draws my imagination. Is it the history? My German roots? Dawn’s Scandanavian roots? My reformation theology? I can’t give you a single reason, I just know I’m drawn there. And I’d love to share the experience with my whole family.

Until that dream comes true, Dawn and I will relish our adventure touring Ireland with our middle child, Haley. Here’s some photos of us enjoying the Emerald Isle.

Photo Gallery: Taming Ireland

Earlier this month we visited Ireland for the first time—perhaps, not the last. Great food, friendly people, ancient history, and amazing scenery greeted us in every town and roadside stop.

Here’s another 12 photos telling the story of our visit, this time with a mostly architectural theme. The Irish have been altering their landscape with the abundant stone found on their island for 1,000s of years. This gallery features stonework from The Round Tower at the Rock of Cashel (circa AD 1100) to present day Dublin.

If landscapes are more your thing, you’ll be amazed by the views in the previous gallery: Wild Ireland.

Enjoy!
