In Ireland it would be easy to assume that the best sunsets are to be found on the west coast with the sun setting over the Atlantic. The Wild Atlantic Way is certainly a great place for sunsets but the east of the country and Ireland's Midlands can boast bright, saturated, stunning evening skies as seen in this image. After…
The late night landscapes of County Kerry last week were the same colour as David Bowie's room - blue, blue, electric blue. Here, after a long day of photographing the south west of Ireland, the sun had set and light was fading leaving a bright blue to envelop the landscape on the Wild Atlantic Way. A beautiful and colourful sight…
You never know what to expect as an outdoor photographer here in Ireland. After a three day photography tour in the west of Ireland I was finishing up and heading home through the midlands and close to sunset I spotted a great stormy sky.
Spring is here and the colour that we see throughout the countryside is quite amazing. In particular in urban settings cherry trees are one of the most impressive displays of colour that this time of year has to offer. Here is one of my favourite images from recent years, taken in Dublin's Herbert Park, an avenue of bright pink blossom…
Pine Island is one of the western region of Connemara's key attractions for landscape photography and one that I return to often. The trees here are Scots Pine, a native evergreen tree that tends to grow tall and slender, it has red coloured wood and tends to add a lot of interest to landscape images of the west of Ireland.…

The stormy, but as seen here calm, waters of the Atlantic stretch thousands of miles beyond the horizon and distant mountains are visible in many directions. This lighthouse is photographed more often than…
As I write this I'm sitting in front of a warm fire with a cup of tea ready to do its job of warming me up from the inside. A near perfect reflection on the lake, snow covering the rugged, well-weathered peaks of the volcanic landscape of Slieve Gullion in South Armagh and sunrays all combine to give a sense…
The west of Ireland - it has great people, great food, great entertainment and great scenery and that all makes for the perfect location for photography.
Wicklow in the morning, this is without doubt one of my favourite images. Working on assignment for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel magazine I had the task to capture representative scenes of Ireland - landscapes, green, classic Dublin buildings.
Forests contain some of the best landscape photography opportunities and Ireland's forests while not extensive, do contain many enticing scenes from moss-covered trees to bluebells in late spring. Join me in one of Ireland's characterful woodlands for a day of landscape photography - for more use the contact page or send me an email.
