    Notes From the Road, West of Ireland

    Despite assurances from all of the self-proclaimed experts on long range weather forecasting in Ireland, summer 2019 has not been as good as 2018 and is on par with 2017 as having been grey, windy, rainy, grey, windy, rainy...

    It has at least been warm, but for photography it has been challenging. The winds, while not hurricane strength have nonetheless been constant in their presence and changeable in their direction and speed.

    In other words, tripod-toppling weather.

    Here is one from a tour in the west of Ireland, as the sun's rays shone through the thick, fast-moving cloud onto the choppy harbour waters of the Atlantic. The greens of the fields aglow with stormy light.

    A Green Lane in Ireland

    The Irish countryside in summer is a fine place, with green in abundance.

    Many sights are full, overcrowded with tourists who come to see the famous places such as the Cliffs of Moher and the Giant's Causeway.

    Old Stone Bridge, Ireland

    Exploring in the Irish countryside can be a fine and rewarding experience.

    Here, I found an old stone bridge dating from the 1840s over a small river surrounded by green trees, its stony riverbed shallow with long grasses sculpted by the low summer flow.

    We stood in the water here, no need for wellies, to photograph this scene.

    Join Panoramic Ireland to explore and photograph the Irish countryside.

    Check Out Those Sun Rays

    After a long day of photography in the Irish countryside, nothing can be better than watching and photographing the sunset.

    I have of course written about sunsets here on Panoramic Ireland before, here is a link to some sunset images from when I was undergoing chemotherapy and recovery from a cancer operation this year, sunset was easy to photograph.

    The Scenic Road is the One That Takes you to Another Place

    The scenic road isn't always the one with world-famous views, vistas of the ocean or snaking upwards through the mountains.

    Often it's the road that takes you further, exploring a countryside that you want to travel deeper into.

    Here, the straight lines and smooth tarmac undulates across the barren, treeless landscape of County Antrim, miles from the UNESCO World Heritage Site the Giant's Causeway, the Dark Hedges made famous by Game of Thrones and the fine views from the Antrim Coast Road.
