Mount Errigal is County Donegal's highest peak. It's magnificent all year round, but in the wintertime, when its peak is covered in snow, it is simply breathtaking.
A few years ago my brother-in-law captured some beautiful shots of a snow clad Errigal. I thought I would share these pictures with you today.
Donegal people look towards the mountains for signs of snow. If the peak looks closer than usual to you, then its a sign of rain, and on a cold day there could be some snow in the air.
These photos were taken in 2010 when there was plenty of snow in Ireland.
The mountains of Ireland usually get a few snow showers every winter, but parts of the country see no snow at all during the cold winter months.
Usually it's rain, rain and more rain, all year round in the Emerald Isle.
Here, the snow seems to reveal an etched face in the mountain side.
Pristine blue skies reflect in the stillness of the lake.
County Donegal is beautiful, come rain or shine, but snow adds an extra luster to her scenery.
And finally a black and white shot, which I think is simply magical.
Hope you enjoyed these photos of Donegal as a winter wonderland.
Thanks for taking a quick photographic tour of this magnificent area.
