Photo Hunt - Road

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is road. I don't have many good road photos so here is a picture of Comeenatrush waterfall and a small section of road that leads towards it

Very interesting picture. It's one of those about which you can certainly say ''every picture tells a story".

What a pity if they were building a road there. Sacrilege to ruin such beautiful country.

Randi said...

This is a fabulous photo!
Love it!
Have a great weekend!

Leslie said...

That's a magnificent waterfall and I like how you show a little bit of road leading towards the falls. Happy weekend.

How many diggers did you see on your holiday? A very familiar sight here in Donegal. We even had three working together on the wee site just across our road here.
Going to some lengths to make the falls accessable.

Colin Campbell said...

Nice shot. Looks like man destroying nature again.

jams o donnell said...

Quite a lot Aileni! The road was already there or rather a track, The track petered out at some ffarms and you have to go through fields to get to it. Still it is a beautiful sight with a lough beneath it

sally in norfolk said...

Road under repair or construction by the looks of things. That is a pretty wild place. Have a good weekend Jams.

It's so beautiful!

Maddy said...

Great shot indeed. I'm hunting for mine right now! Well not literally right now but you know what I mean.

I believe we're allowed a little latitude, so I might be making a big leap.
Cheers

If there is a road up that mountain, that is one road I would not take! haha....

Everyday Healy said...

All I see is a big green mountain which I will surely be shivering if I am standing on top of it. Hahaha......

Napaboaniya said...

A road that will be quite an adventure travelling up to the mountains! :)

That must be a fantastic view from along the road. Would love to take that trip.

Wonderful scenery Jams - absolutely magnificent!

Criz Lai said...

I can imagine how long they will take to build a road up there. It's not easy as it looks.

That's a lovely waterfall and view in general. The fact that the road and the truck is so small just adds to the sense of grandeur of the mountain. Great shot!
