Title: When the Snow Melted
Tools: nothing. no photoshop
Published: Not until now. I took it for my Ireland series in a travel mag but it didn’t make it in.
I took this photograph. It never snowed in Ireland. It snowed. And when I mean snowed, I mean IT SNOWED. A LOT. The pipes froze. It was terrible. Thank God we had cranberry juice and sparkling water and nutella. Then, suddenly, everything melted leaving the farmland, valleys, and roads completely flooded.
I will venture to say the rain was worse than the snow. Before that time, I personally never saw so many areas of land suddenly turn into lakes. My trip of one week turned into a month. I couldn’t travel to any of my other work destinations (England, Italy, France, and Prague).
The photo above captures a ruin that is actually on someone’s property. See that gate? It’s to keep the livestock in. That farmer can’t let his cows out for a long while…
