Sometimes summer in Ireland is just not what you would expect. Well, perhaps it is what you might expect. Usually our summers are filled with long days, sunshine and cloud with a good deal of rain but much blue sky - like this. Summer 2017 has so far proved to be a good bit different with many grey days, lingering…
Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way stretches for 2,500km along the country's Atlantic seaboard from Cork in the south to Donegal in the north. Here is one small section of that coastline, in County Clare when on a photography workshop we stopped to photograph the delights of this county well known for traditional music, archaeology and Father Ted. I call it 'Waves'…
A recent photography workshop saw us finish up for sunset at a famous Irish location but on the way we stopped here to capture this rural scene of green fields and sheep-dotted mountain ridges sidelighted by the low summer evening sun.
An old fence runs into deep waters from the shore. I stopped here after a photography tour to capture this blue, wave-filled scene and used the fence to add interest into the image.
I found this old stone bridge recently, having photographed the valley in which it sits I climbed down off the road, slipping most of the way on the steep incline that was boggy and wet. Thankfully the ground was soft.
As I mentioned in previous posts, this week saw me returning to Dingle in Ireland's southwest. And I wasn't disappointed, neither of course was JM who joined me from the USA for one of my one-to-one photography workshops in Ireland.
I have been spending time photographing and leading photography workshops recently in Dingle, Ireland's most westerly peninsula in County Kerry. Here is an image of the Atlantic, its waves crashing up over ancient rocks under a stormy sky.
A recent photography workshop saw me photographing at one of Dublin's scenic locations, the Samuel Beckett Bridge as it spans the River Liffey. It was a calm evening as sunset approached yet in the distance the singing from Croke Park could be heard all over the city, U2 were playing their one and only concert in Ireland as part of…
Cobh, a port town in Cork Harbour is best known to the world as the last port of call for RMS Titanic, the ill-fated luxury liner that sank on her maiden voyage across the Atlantic in 1912. It is now best known to over 140,000 cruise visitors per year who disembark from 69 vessels as the pretty seaside town that…
On a recent photography workshop to my own part of Ireland, the Antrim Coast, we stopped on our way between photographing waterfalls and caves to stop and photograph across the sea of Moyle towards Scotland. This part of Ireland is closest to Scotland, approximately 12 miles of North Atlantic separating Ballycastle from the Mull of Kintyre. Here we are overlooking…
