It's no secret that Ireland is a scenic place, very often visitors are drawn to the big open landscapes, the famous places such as the Cliffs of Moher, Dingle or the Giant's Causeway.

Dublin Bay is a UNESCO Biosphere - a protected area designated important for wildlife. Since 1981 the beach and dunes, pictured here, at Bull Island in Dublin Bay have been a Biosphere, in 2015 the whole bay was brought into that designation including the Baily Lighthouse on Howth Head.
I wrote last year about the end of winter, the green of spring and in that post I used an image of shamrocks with water droplets. Just today, Saint Patrick's Day (17th March) I photographed a similar scene of water droplets on leaves and the bright sunlight glints in the fresh raindrops. Shamrocks are of course a well known symbol…

Cork's famous bridge across the River Lee, one of many, seen here on a calm reflective autumn day. The bridge has two names, Daly's Bridge is the official title but it is mostly known to Corconians as the Shakey Bridge. The bridge is due for refurbishment, they will remove it and carry out repairs to replace it late in 2019.…
Threecastles, County Wicklow - Ireland I've been out photographing in the Irish countryside in recent weeks as autumn makes its way across Ireland. On one of the bright blue-sky days I stopped at Threecastles in County Wicklow, south-west of Dublin.
