    Autumn Gives Way to Winter, Colourful Irish Lanes

    We're now rightly through December and on our way to the end of 2017.

    At the start of the year I posted about my last foray of 2016 along laneways in rural Ireland here.

    At the end of autumn, just a few weeks ago I was exploring another lane, this time in Northern Ireland.

    The resulting images are both very different but both convey the same idea - what lies ahead on the journey.

    The differences for me between the black and white last lane of 2016 and this, last lane of autumn are massive. My journey has taken me to three commissions by the biggest name in world publishing - The New York Times, working on travel articles as a photographer.

    I have of course worked for many other famous names in travel including Easyjet, Ritz-Carlton and Ireland's Irish Times and the UK's Sunday Times.

    Continue with me on my journey in 2018 as I explore more of Ireland, follow me on social media or sign up for my newsletter.

    Send me an email if you have any questions and I look forward to seeing some of you on one of my photography tours and workshops in Ireland.

    Up the Steep and Snowy Road for a Photography Experience

    Photography and Ireland. It doesn't always involve snow, not even in the mountains.

    As I looked out to green fields and sunny blue skies on the mountain slopes today, not a drop of the white blanket to be seen, it seemed a far way away from this image where, during a photography workshop on how to photograph snowy landscapes we made our way up the mountain - its road snow-covered and icy, at one point it was almost impossible to make it up the ever-steepening slopes.

    Along the way DK and I had plenty of landscapes to photograph. I explained how to photograph the often bright snow to gain the best from any weather conditions, afterwards we warmed up and had a short session on how to edit images in Lightroom.

    Why would you want to take a photography tour / workshop / experience with me, I hear you ask.

    Into the Cave

    During a recent photography workshop on Ireland's coast (see here for more information) we stopped to find a small cave at low tide.

    It wasn't a famous or large cave but it did have a certain character to it with intense sunshine coming in from one side.

    Photography workshops and tours in Ireland are not just about the typical landscapes and scenes, although I do cover these on my experiences, but it's more about the journey.

    Snow in Ireland

    The green fields of Ireland, looking lush green on a December day with snow-covered mountains.

    Ireland doesn't receive a lot of snow, given that Dublin lies on the same latitude as Edmonton in Canada and northern Donegal is almost parallel with Moscow.

    New York Times and Panoramic Ireland Come to Cork

    One of the world's best known publications, The New York Times, has recently visited Cork - a city in Ireland's southwest whose inhabitants often refer to as The Real Capital.

    How do I know this? Well Panoramic Ireland (that's me - hello) photographed the charismatic small city for the 36 Hours in Cork feature.

    36 Hours in Cork will be published in the New York Times on Thursday 14th December 2017. Find it online or buy it in print, and if you do can you send me a copy?

    Check out the NYT's Instagram post below, and don't forget to follow me over there on IG, as it says in the post I'm @panoramicireland
