A Morning in Ballyhack

I went painting yesterday (Sunday 19 August) with a few friends to the little village of Ballyhack. It was a misty, overcast day, which turned into persistent rain by afternoon. Thankfully, I got one done before it turned wet. I had to work really hard to find some colour and even then had to enhance things a little, but I'm fairly pleased with the result.

Thanks Rene. Yes, boats stuck in the wet mud at low tide are usually much more interesting than floating ones!
