Galway in the Rain


The weather has been so horribly bad for the last week it was simply impossible to do anything outdoors.

I am not going to even mention a casual stroll with a camera in hand, not when there is a yellow weather warning for everyone to stay indoors and keep the shutters bolted.
Not when it keeps hailing every few hours – big hard balls of ice that the wind drives into the face with particularly unpleasant force!!
Not when everything that is a bit loose and forgotten somewhere in the garden starts flying happily around  – you can simply forget about it!!

It’s been a hell of a week and apparently it is not over. But we can all hope, right, that it will be over soon. Or so I heard.

The only images I managed to take lately were from the car in the pouring rain or while running for shelter while bracing myself against the horrible wind!!
This is certainly a different view of our fair city. It takes a bit of imagination and appreciation of the abstract arts. Still, I hope you approve.

Here is a little collection of mine taken while driving through Galway in the rain or while running for cover from the wind.
