    Into the Canopy, Beech Trees at the Dark Hedges

    The Dark Hedges are one of the most famous locations associated with Game of Thrones.

    But of course for those of us from the area, from the fine Causeway Coast and Glens of Antrim, it was always a scenic avenue.

    Here, a view into the canopy of those centuries-old beech trees.

    Join me, Panoramic Ireland, to photograph in Ireland. From the Antrim Coast to West Cork.

    Two Donkeys in an Irish Field

    Two friendly Irish donkeys in the Irish countryside, a field of green and yellow under a drumlin.

    The donkey, Equus asinus would have been a common sight in Ireland before the age of the tractor, now a rare enough treat to spot these friendly creatures although I have photographed and written about them before here on Panoramic Ireland.

    The drumlin is the hill in the background with cows, a drumlin (Irish word used in geomorphology) is a hill formed by glacial action - the ice moving along flat ground and sculpting it through mechanical action.

    Another Fine Picnic is Over, Sunny Electric Picnic 2022

    A mostly bright and sunny Electric Picnic, held in the grounds of Stradbally Hall in Ireland's County Laois in September annually, is now over until next year.

    I made the return to photograph at the largest festival in Ireland, this year the Picnic was back after missing 2020 and 2021.

    Seen here, enthusiastic fans watching Irish band The Coronas on a warm sunny September evening in Ireland's midlands.

    Tickets for Electric Picnic 2023 go on sale this weekend.

    Black and White Landscape, Ireland

    I usually do prefer to work with colour images, for more than 99% of the photographs that I make they are in colour.

    But every so often I do enjoy a good black and white image such as here in this landscape image of a tumbledown cottage amongst the mountain scenery from the west of Ireland.

    Join Panoramic Ireland to photograph scenes like this from the Atlantic fringe of Ireland - photography tours and workshops operate all year round.

    Mountain, Valley, Stone Walls and Rowan Tree

    Ireland has no shortage of fine mountain and valley scenery, despite having no large mountains - nothing over 1,040 metres above sea level.

    Here in late summer, one of many such Irish landscapes, the small buildings with tin roof, rusted from years of exposure - standing out amongst the green of the west of Ireland, mirrored in the bright colours of the rowan berries from the mountain ash in the foreground.

    A cloud filled sky creates a light and shadow patchwork over the steep slopes of this countryside scene.

    Join Panoramic Ireland to photograph in the west of Ireland.
