We were lucky enough to get a table at this restaurant. Food was great and the people, both staff and other diners, were wonderful. If you have chance, do visit: https://www.diluca.ie/

And then of course as you’re focusing on light and branches you realize that there are other things being illuminated as well.

… I charge straight ahead and then something happens and I am reminded to look back, and that’s when I see beauty like this, when the sun is shining through leaves.
