Happy New Year from Mythical Ireland!
Last sunset of 2013 - Happy New Year

This is just a short message to wish you all a Happy New Year 2014, and to thank all of you for your continued support. 2013 was a wonderful year, with the publication of 'Land of the Ever-Living Ones', following so closely on the publication in winter 2012 of 'Newgrange: Monument to Immortality'.

To finish 2013, I made my way to Dowth, from the top of which I observed the final sunset of the year. It was a spectacular evening, and a beautiful sunset behind the hill of Réaltoge. Here are a few photos from the evening. I hope you enjoy them! - Anthony Murphy, January 1st, 2014.

Sun and clouds
The sun dazzled and the clouds lit up spectacularly as 2013 came to a close.

Nikon D7000 sunset
My Nikon D7000, which is my main camera, set up on the top of Dowth to catch the last sunset of 2013.
Last light of 2013
The last light of 2013 . . . the sun sinks beneath Réaltoge Hill and the next time it appears over the Boyne Valley it will be 2014.
