Woke up to find my sister Edel had posted this photograph on our family WhatsApp group to welcome the New Year. She had captured the first sunrise from the shore of Carlingford Lough, in our hometown of Warrenpoint.
Living round the corner from such beauty really does the heart good. ❤️ However, I missed the dawn as I was still asleep, having stayed up well into the wee small hours watching coverage of the 2019 Glastonbury festival. Perhaps my New Year’s resolution should be to stop looking back. Oh, and to do a lot more painting—so this landscape could be the first of 2021!
