The story behind another image currently on my new fine art website www.mariecommiskey.com
In 2002 I took a journey to Ireland. I flew into Shannon in early February. The weather was wet, windy and quite brutal some days. I rented a car and headed out in search of a B&B to stay for a couple of nights to get my bearings and decide in which direction to travel. Upon waking one morning, I decided to drive north towards Sligo. There are many awesome sights to see on this route. I was most impressed with the cemeteries and little churchyards with their mighty cathedrals! Doing a bit of research I discovered that W.B. Yeats, one of my favorite poets, was buried in a Protestant churchyard in Drumcliffe, County Sligo. On this day it was dark, rainy and just all around gloomy. Perfect day to visit a cemetery! We found Yeats' gravestone and it read:
"Cast a cold Eye
On Life, on Death.
Horseman, pass by!"
This shot of the celtic cross was across the way from Yeats' gravestone. I found this image a much more pleasing sight.
