    Foggy Days and Photography - Make the Most of Not Ideal Weather

    Ah, the notoriously bad weather in Ireland. Well there's a reputation that the Irish climate is unsuitable for photography. But it's not all true.

    Sure there are stormy days, rainy days and grey sky days. But there are plenty of blue sky days, sunny days, calm days and even on those bad days there is always something to photograph.

    It has been a foggy few days here and I have been photographing in some new locations, while I'm working on the images here is one, the picture above, of a fabulously foggy day in the Irish countryside taken during summer.

    Panoramic Ireland's 500th Post

    This post marks Panoramic Ireland's 500th blog post here on panoramicirelanc.com.

    A year after treatment for cancer and I am still posting of photographic adventures throughout Ireland.

    The image above is of Cork, the River Lee at night and Saint Finbarre's Cathedral. I photographed this fine scene for Eater, the world's most popular food website as part of their Where to eat in 2020 and Cork was one of the few cities in Europe to be on the list. Have a look at the images and Cork article here.

    The Peninsulas of Donegal

    Donegal is Ireland's most northerly county, its peninsulae jutting out into the North Atlantic with Malin Head being the northernmost point on the island.

    And it is a scenic part of Ireland, the coast is long with rocky sections, cliffs, sandy beaches and with more than a few lighthouses it lives up to its reputation as a rugged place.

    The Foggy Forests of Ireland - Green, Red and Ethereal

    I do like photographing in Ireland in winter, the countryside is mostly empty and the weather can be fine.

    Here it was a foggy day with little chance of a break in the cloud overhead so instead of heading for a big wide open scene we headed for a good little woodland where we could make use of the ethereal atmosphere that fog so often gives.

    The beech trees were covered in almost luminous, bright green moss and the forest floor carpeted in red/brown beech leaves, and in between all of that the fog permeated the whole place.

    Bright and Colourful Winter in Ireland

    Winter can be cold and monotone in places around the world, but here in Ireland it is more often than not a colourful time of year interspersed with snowy days.

    Most of the time, snow is absent even in the mountains except for the rare years.

    Here we have the rugged, weathered mountains of the west of Ireland and the Atlantic looking calm.
