sunset over forest, cavan ireland

Coming to the end of a lovely day’s walk in the Killykeen Forest Park, in county Cavan, we arrived back at the car as the sun was going down. Some of the last photos I took that day look quite eerie, even creepy (more so if I had been on my own).

The various trails bring you around the Lough Oughter lake system and are interspersed with picnic and swimming areas. There is also a very accessible family cycle trail of 3km

None of these shots were taken in monochrome, they just turned out that way in the last bit of light that was available. I love walking through forestry and woodland in the daytime, but late in the evening, as daylight disappears, the atmosphere can turn a little creepy.

Killykeen Park is  located close to Killeshandra and not far from Cavan town. It’s very popular with families, bird watchers, walkers and anglers.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Creepy.”

    That’s not too far from my grandparent’s town–Mohill. The trees in silhouette do have an “other worldly” feel to them. Nice!
