Artist's Description

There are some places one visits that simply renders the observer speechless. For me, Newgrange fit that bill. There's a chance I would have stumbled over this site anyway, but it also came recommended by an archaeologist friend. And I entirely understood why as I stood there waiting for my chance to go inside what is sometimes billed as the oldest observatory in the world.

About Mark E Tisdale

Mark E Tisdale

Life is full of happy surprises. After just over a decade working in the 9 to 5 cube world, I threw caution to the wind to follow my dreams of being a full time visual artist. That was five years ago! Is it easy? No, but something truly worthwhile is rarely simple.
