Eye of Winter – The rising sun on this Winter Solstice morning over County Clare, Ireland.

The rising sun on this Winter Solstice Day appears as an eye peeking through a break in the morning cloud cover over the Shannon River Valley in County Clare, Ireland, as a leafless hedge hibernates in the Irish countryside.
