18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Burren

We were in Ireland for my nephew's wedding. The venue was a 12th century abbey in the Burren region, so we did as much sightseeing in the area as we could. We were on a very narrow road in the countryside when I passed by this scene and I knew I needed to try to capture it. I couldn't pull over for another quarter of a mile and ran back while the sun was still out from behind the clouds, lighting the scene.
