Thanks Cindy!

Love the view through the window as well as the birds overhead. I also toured Ireland. It's difficult to keep someone from walking into your shot, but here was just the opposite...waiting for the birds. I've enjoyed this gallery of amazing photos.

I spent a month there but it was winter, so I may not have had quite the same challenges if you went in the regular season! I do remember one particular spot on Inis Mor though where my small group arrived at the same time as a bus load of people! Our guide was so kind.

I visited these ruins on a tour bus in winter. There were only a small handful of people along with me taking in these wilds of Connemara. The people with me were in another part of the old medieval monastery. I happened to overhear birds shuffling about in some hidden spot in the walls.

I did think I might get this chance, but truly it was very much a moment of chance. There was just as much lik...

About Mark E Tisdale

Mark E Tisdale

Life is full of happy surprises. After just over a decade working in the 9 to 5 cube world, I threw caution to the wind to follow my dreams of being a full time visual artist. That was five years ago! Is it easy? No, but something truly worthwhile is rarely simple. My body of work is wide ranging from photographic scenes of far away places, more near and dear locations, and more fanciful artwork. It's all crafted with a heartfelt love for finding the beauty in little captured moments. My artwork also hangs on walls near and far from private homes to businesses who have chosen to decorate with my art. Whether you've purchased one piece or a house full or you simply admire and share with your friends, your patronage of my art is...
