Last Saturday, the Camera Club and I went to the Copper Coast Geopark in Waterford to take some photos for an event we hold twice a year in the club. This is one of the things I enjoy most about being a member of a Camera Club. I shall post about the benefits of being a Member of a Camera Club at a later date. The weather was warm, dry and overcast. If you are in that part of Ireland, I would recommend visiting the area, as it is a beautiful part of the country. There was a Food Festival on in Dungarvan that weekend too, and the Waterford Greenway has recently opened, both of which are worth visiting if you are in Waterford.
The Copper Coast Geopark is described on it’s website as : “an outdoor museum of geological records; it stretches along the coast from Kilfarassy Beach, near Fenor in the east to Ballyvoile Beach near Stradbally to the west. Volcanoes, oceans, deserts and ice sheets all combined to create the rocks which provide the physical foundation of the natural and cultural landscapes of the area.”
