It does rain in Ireland, most notably so in the west of Ireland where the winds coming in off the Atlantic Ocean first meet land after thousands of miles.
There was a calm silence as our clothes got wet but cameras were kept safe and waterproof by combination of plastic materials that allowed us to photograph what was quite a beautiful scene.
Landscape photography is certainly about more than sunrises and sunsets. Inclement weather often makes for a more atmospheric image and of course when time is limited one has to make the most of it but I also believe that images like these are representative of Ireland - it truly does look like this on occasion.
