    My wife Cathy and I took a brief 10-day vacation to Ireland, a place I had studied abroad many years ago and somewhere my wife has always wanted to visit. We were blessed with amazing weather for the majority of the trip and were able to take some great photos. I bought a 12-40 PRO just a week prior and was blown away by the quality and convenience (having previously been a prime-only shooter). I did bring a couple primes (25/1.4 & Nocticron), but only used them for a handful of shots. Really pleased with the EM5II + 12-40 combo. Below are some of my favorites from the trip.

    A random location on the side of the road while travelling south toward Dublin. The sun's backlight gave this tree an other-worldly, viridescent glow.

    Found along a seaside path in Greystones, a town south of Dublin.

    Same location as above. The greens and orange among the rocks were beautiful together. Colors are true to SOOC JPEG, with minor exposure adjustment.

    The Gap of Dunloe - interesting that the shepherds apparently spray-paint their sheep bright colors to better recognize their flocks

    Bottle-feeding a 1-day old lamb at one of our Airbnb's - this was Cathy's favorite part of the trip :)

    Bonus photo: a portrait of a rooster who didn't exactly appreciate having his picture taken :)

    Terrific series. I have strong family heritage to both Eire and Ulster - so hope to make it there some time.
