    Daybreak on the Irish Sea Coast of Ireland

    Pink sky in the morning, day breaks as the sun nears the horizon once again spilling colour throughout the seascape without a care.

    Announcing loudly that today is going to be bright and colourful, the Irish Sea plays its part in the directive - let's make this one to remember.

    And it certainly was a sunrise to remember, the colours and warming glow made us stop in awe, of course we were there to photograph such a scene and we were not disappointed.

    Planning only takes you so far, then there is adaptation to what nature is giving at any moment.

    Come and join me on a morning photography adventure in Ireland; find and photograph scenes like these on one of Panoramic Ireland's photography workshops and tours - for everyone.

    After Sunset at the Coast, Ireland

    Grass clings to the rocky outcropping just offshore like it has done for countless millennia.

    After the sun has set and all have gone home, I have this section of coast to myself with nothing more than the sounds of seabirds settling in for the night and crashing waves across the stony foreshore.

    Sunny Summer Solstice, Ireland 2017

    It isn't always hot in Ireland, in fact the first two weeks of June 2017 saw colder than usual temperatures and, in places, double the rainfall average for the whole month.

    Today, the longest day of the year has been hot, along with the past few days we have seen temperatures of over 28C.

    Here on Howth Pier in County Dublin this elderly couple were enjoying the afternoon summer sun on the stone wall, and why not?

    To answer the often asked questions "Is it ever sunny in Ireland?" and "Does it rain all the time?" here is proof.

    It isn't always raining, cold and grey; very often it is sunny and warm, on occasions hot.

    On a recent photography workshop to the Antrim Coast, specifically the Giant's Causeway, in between shooting images I made some video of the stunning UNESCO World Heritage Site that is close to where I grew up and studied at University.

    I have written about the Causeway in recent weeks, you can read more about that here and to book a photography tour or workshop on the Antrim Coast please contact me here.

    Stormy Evening Sky over Dublin's River Liffey, Samuel Beckett Bridge and Convention Centre

    Evening in Dublin as the stormy post-sunset light slowly turns to night via storm clouds spreading across the sky over the Irish capital's River Liffey and its modern structures - The Samuel Beckett Bridge, Convention Centre and others.

    This is a place that I have photographed often but it never looks the same twice.

    To join Panoramic Ireland, that's me, on a photography tour of Dublin and learn how to make panoramic images like this then find out more here.
