    Coastal Geology, Photography in Ireland

    The Irish coastline is full of variation with long sandy beaches, rocky inlets and geological formations in a compact area.

    And that makes Ireland a perfect place for coastal landscape photography.

    Here the rocks are carboniferous limestone, in layers that have been long eroded by the wave action of the Atlantic.

    We set up our cameras and tripods on the cold winter afternoon, hoping for some sunlight but actually in this case the overcast weather worked better.

    I was at this point only a few weeks away from having an operation to remove a cancerous tumour, and during that time it was scenes like this that kept me motivated in my treatment and recovery.

    I'm almost a year post-cancer; I'm still photographing, I'm still leading photography workshops and tours in Ireland and you can book a private photography session with me through the site here at Panoramic Ireland.

    Send me an email to ask about photo workshops in your area of Ireland.

    The Mightiest Tree in the Forest

    The mightiest tree in the forest, an Irish woodland.

    A recent visit through an Irish woodland saw me find and photograph the mightiest tree in the forest, pictured here.

    It can't be done, to cut down this tree with a herring - I thought to myself.

    Well, I did find a shrubbery before finishing up on my quest to photograph this fine, green place.

    Sunset Silhouette in Dublin

    Dublin is a place of colour and charm, here the setting sun brightens up the sky over the River Liffey.

    On the photography workshop we experimented with silhouettes of the famous skyline from this part of Dublin.

    The colours and dark outlines of the city's buildings captured the atmosphere of the evening in the Irish capital.

    Join Panoramic Ireland to photograph Dublin on one of our Dublin Photo Tours.

    Green and Grey in an Irish Winter

    I often get asked about how the weather is in Ireland in winter.

    Well, it's hard to say anything definitive but in general, Ireland is green all year round including in winter.

    Just like in the image above from the west of Ireland in December.

    Typically a winter daytime temperature will be around 5C but colder conditions and snow sometimes occur. The mild winter temperature is what allows the grass to keep its healthy green colour, blanketing the countryside.
