I occasionally share the work of bloggers I admire. They are writers from around the world, and they cover a wide variety of subjects. Some are professional writers or photographers, some not. In every instance, they provide words and pictures, not merely one or the other.
Edward Mooney is a photographer who lives in County Kildare, Ireland. His blog features his stunning black and white images and well-written, thoroughly researched articles about their history (or prehistory), the culture from which they came and details about how to visit them.
Most of his work features historic or ancient sites, and his use of high contrast photography emphasizes the drama of the ever-present past that is part of the Irish landscape. I encourage you to explore his blog and website. He gives us an in-depth look at his homeland the rest of us may only be able to visit for fleeting glimpses. Don’t forget to give him a like.
Here is his presentation of one of the many standing stones scattered throughout Ireland:
Kildare is probably best known for its horse breeding and flat open plains, unfortunately we don’t have an abundance of ancient Neolithic monuments, there are no great Stone Circles or Burial…
