Travel photo of the day
Breathing Deep in the Dark Forest
It's a tradition now - traveling to Glendalough, County Wicklow (Ireland) in early January to breathe in the freshest air and welcome the new year surrounded by some of the most magical scenery on earth.
This photo was taken on a walking path that leads into St. Kevin's monastic site, founded in the 6th century. In the distance is Glendalough's round tower, originally built as a place of refuge against attackers of the monastery.
