Snow in the Mountains, after Storm Ciara before Storm Dennis

Snow in the Irish Mountains, February 2020 Snow in the Irish Mountains, February 2020

Some snow in the Irish mountains, I knew that winter wasn't over yet back in January.

After quite an adventure where the roads were snowbound today, having to reverse down a mountain side as progress was non-grippy, slippy and, in the end, impossible.

In fact the car ahead of me had already run into troubles on the steep incline, there were patches of compacted snow and ice across the road, particularly where sunlight hadn't reached over the past few days, after all I was climbing up the northern slopes of the mountains.

Ten minutes or so of reverse descending, riding the brakes of the car and keeping that speed low before finding a turning point and then, finally, black tarmac.

A different road finally took me on to another location that I ended up exploring on foot.

An old road with bridge took off across the uplands towards the mountains where I photographed the scene above.

I didn't get a chance to photograph snow last year, 2019, as I was going through cancer treatment, an operation and chemotherapy. Indeed the journey home from hospital was a snowy one but no photographs until the following day.

So I planned to get out and about with the camera this year, between Storm Ciara and the incoming Storm Dennis, before all the snow melts.

Join me, for snow later in the year or for fine spring, summer or autumn photography in Ireland on a private or small group photography workshop in the Irish countryside.
