Snaps | The Sea Breeze

Hey Friends!
Yesterday myself and my sister, her husband and three kids all went to the seaside for the evening. The weather was absolutely fabulous especially for September and I honestly don't think there was many places that looked more beautiful than Galway Bay on the west coast of Ireland. The sky was clear and blue, the water sparkling in the sunshine, it was thronged with people and their children, pets and ice creams and there was a couple of traditional Irish boats called the Galway Hookers, out near the coast. 

One of the things I love about going somewhere so beautiful and peaceful is seeing other people enjoy it and take it all in. I love seeing people sitting on their own with a smile looking out at the sea, old men fishing and children playing in the ocean. Good weather and the sea can make everyone so happy and it is a great escape from everyday life.

I was extremely annoyed at myself for not bringing my DSLR camera. I seriously need to get a bag for it and start bringing it places. I would have gotten some stunning pictures damn! I think I will go again sometime during this nice weather and take some pictures....I'm now thinking maybe I should wait until then to make this post....hmmm....nah, I can always do another one right? The pictures will be different after all. Now it is time for my not-so-great quality phone pictures, I hope you enjoy them regardless.

Let me know in the comments where you like to go to feel happy and refreshed.

Sometimes it's so much about angles and composition and knowing how to frame the photo artistically more than it is about the camera you used to shoot the photos. This is definitely one of those cases. I think these photos are pretty darn gorgeous! Maybe you can't blow them up on a canvas too well, but they look quite fabulous on a computer screen. :)

Your phone photos are still beautiful...It makes me want to take a trip down to the seaside too! ANYWHERE away from home would make me feel refreshed! HOLIDAYS are always such a blessing. But, I totally agree with Carly...the pics look good on my computer screen!

Your photos are still lovely Sinead! :) without a doubt to feel happy & refreshed I'd have to say in the countryside for me...down country lanes, through the woods too :)
