Creeslough, co. Donegal
Interesting. Never seen that here. Though we have a "Torfhaus" some 60 km from here (if it still exists).
I hope that peat extraction is no longer praticed.
It looks beautiful.
Descriptive photo.God bless.
It is interesting, all the green looks pretty. Take care, have a great day!
Lovely shot! Very interesting to know, too!
Something that just doesn't happen on this side of the Atlantic.
This is land I know well!
Muito interessante. Gostei.É a primeira vez que venho, Bill. Abraço
Beautiful 😍 I love it www.rsrue.blogspot.com
Never seen that.
Dear Bill, this reminds me of our first holiday in Ireland in 1995. We did a bog tour with a small bog train. Unfortunately, cutting out peat soil is not good for nature - valuable habitat disappears and CO2 is released. But I think if a hard winter comes with lack of gas, bog will be one of the tools for the people of Ireland...All the best from Austria, Traudehttps://rostrose.blogspot.com/2022/07/mallorca-reisebericht-teil-2-tag-4-bis.html
it is new for me.... interesting
No había visto nada igual.
Uma bela paisagem, mas é algo que não sabia!Amigo BillUm abraço
I thought the use of peat was being discouraged.
Neat, I've never seen anyone do that with peat before.
It looks very much like where we live now on the west coast of NZ's south island, everything here over winter is mushy and boggy too
Yup! Made me giggle as bog means toilet too!!
Wee visited a peat farm when we were in Ireland.
A fine photo, Bill. And here a few lines from the wonderful Seamus Heaney:My grandfather could cut more turf in a day Than any other man on Toner's bog. Once I carried him milk in a bottle Corked sloppily with paper. He straightened up To drink it, then fell to right away Nicking and slicing neatly, heaving sods Over his shoulder, digging down and down For the good turf. Digging. The cold smell of potato mold, the squelch and slap Of soggy neat the curt cuts of an edge Through living roots awaken in my head. But I've no spade to follow men like them*.Between my finger and my thumbThe squat pen rests.I am digging.*His father and grandfather.
A nice and different capture ...All the best Jan
THAT'S A GREAT PLACE
Interesting I've never seen anything like it.
Bello paisaje te mando un beso.
Only in Ireland did I ever smell burning peat, a fuel of ages past.
Interesting to see.

Hi Bill.Very old technique of drying and cutting peat.Greetings from Patricia.
An interesting process. I love all this green landscape.
Praying you're OK, Bill.God bless.
Even the bog is beautiful in your world.
That's really cool Bill! ☺

Happy weekend wishes.All the best Janhttps://thelowcarbdiabetic.blogspot.com/
For a minute, I thought these were the result of collapse of a mine shaft. It is a specialty of cultural practice I guess.
Did not know that. Cool.
This has always fascinated me. Great pic.
Gostei de ver! Este ano, há que saber ultrapassar o Inverno com as melhores soluções energéticas... e que sejam o menos danosas possível para o ambiente, já que muitas centrais a carvão serão reativadas, na Europa, segundo me parece...Um grande abraço!Ana
It can be dangerous at night..
