Our friend, Spanish photographer Alfredo Caliz has an exhibition of his work running in Barcelona at the moment, and has some of the photographs featured in Spain’s leading newspaper, El Pais, for which he’s shot countless assignments over the years.

One of the shots featured is this amazing image of Long Strand in West Cork – somewhere we visit with him and his family every summer when they’re over here. I’m sure Alfredo wouldn’t mind me sharing it with you here:

Horses sillhouetted on Castlefreke Dunes, Long Strand, West Cork

Walking on Long Strand the other day we doubled back across the dunes and back along the road. It’s a conservation area, and to promote plant biodiversity they have horses grazing the dunes over the winter. I looked up and saw these two cresting a large dune, silhouetted against the overcast sky.
