The shortest day

22nd December 2011
Yesterday was the shortest day and I had planned to get either a sunrise or a sunset,or both ! The low cloud cover meant there was no sunrise and the cloud and rain continued most of the day. In the afternoon I went to Castlebar so that my daughter GrĂ¡inne could finish her Christmas shopping, she could not find what she wanted so we said we would nip over to Westport. I had given up any hope of getting a picture today, but as we left Castlbar, the sun set behind a bank of clouds and there was no sunset visible, however just as we got to Westport and with the sun already set, the clouds parted, and the sky put on a great display!!
The thick dark cloud at the bottom of this picture is shrouding Crough Patrick, but the sky above was incredible. The display only lasted about ten minutes so it did not delay the shopping for too long!!
