Loch Na Fooey (Irish: Loch na Fuaiche) is a rectangular shaped glacial lake situated in County Galway. Part of the north-eastern shore lies along the border to County Mayo. The closest village is Finny, Co. Mayo with the picturesque Galway village of Leenaun (and Ireland’s only “fjord“, Killary Harbour) approximately 11 km distant.
This photo was taken last October on a weekend trip with the local camera club. The previous night had been a late one but I managed to set the alarm before going to sleep. Luckily enough there was a car waiting when I scrambled out of bed and down the stairs. The location had been suggested to us by one of the staff in the hotel the night before and was well worth the early start (even with a sore head). We were rewarded with a fantastic sunrise which made it all worthwhile. We stayed a while before returning for a well earned breakfast.
