Happy New year and welcome to the first of 12 blog posts about our 2016 calendar.
As we mentioned when you purchased the calendar there is a story or a day out behind every image and on the first day of the month (roughly :)) I will give you that story and some behind the scenes pictures.
Our January image was actually taken in July last year and came about by chance really.
Aoife and I had both had a long day of work and decided we would take advantage of the long summer evening and went for a picnic back in Clahane, Liscannor, Co. Clare.
Being an Irish summer evening it wasn't exactly warm and certainly not sitting out weather (don't let the sun fool you!!).
We ended up eating the picnic nestled into the back of my Qashqui.
After taking a few images on the rocks we decided it was off to O'Looneys for a hot chocolate!
We were sitting at a window seat watching the sun go down. As many will know I love a good sunset and I left the hot chocolate (not like me) to go take a picture. As I arrived at the top of the promenade the peacefulness of the silhouettes caught my eye and January's image was created.
On the road home the sky remained red for quiet some time.
Check back again on February 1st for another story.
