Sunny Spring day on the Shannon

Ireland's longest river, the Shannon, is beautiful on a sunny spring day.

Sunny Spring on the Shannon

The longest river in Ireland or Britain, the River Shannon flows southwesterly from its source near the border with Northern Ireland beyond Limerick to the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast of Ireland, a distance of 360km.

Over the past year I have spent many days photographing on the Shannon, appreciating its calm waters, big skies, reeds and wildlife, this is an exciting place for a photographer. Reflections are the order of the day here.

Compare this image of a sunny spring afternoon to these images that I took at a different location on the Shannon of an amazing winter evening just after sunset.

It is truly a beautiful river with many lakes and towns lying along its course. A place that could take a holiday just in itself to explore.

Panoramic Ireland run tours of the highlights along the Shannon, with an emphasis on photography, courses are suitable for all levels and take in all the best sights that the region has to offer. I lead several workshops in the midwest region of Ireland every year.

Oh and here is one that I found from a previous trip to the Shannon, arriving here just after sunset the sky seemed like it was on fire, with that beautiful warm glow reflected in the calm waters. 

Come along and see it for yourself!
