Roundstone Bog
Photographer:Cross, H. B.
Description:A photograph of Roundstone Bog. Roundstone is in Connemara, a part of Galway county between Lough Corrib and the Atlantic. The foreground is rocky. The caption at the back of the picture reads, "Roundstone Bog, between Clifden and Roundstone in Connemara, is a wide tract of low-lying bog and heathery knolls with a labyrinth of streams linking over a hundred lakes. It is the finest and best-preserved example of lowland blanket bog in the world, and a unique habitat for several rare plants and birds. With its superb backdrop of mountains, it is a place of strange beauty and undisturbed peace."
