Fields of Gold and Blue in County Tipperary, Ireland

On a recent roadtrip through the Irish countryside, I found a fine field of rapeseed, also known as canola - one of the most widely grown plants used for cooking oils derived from its seed.

With a fine blue spring sky overhead and a bright wide field of golden flowers the colours reminded of the traditional colours of County Tipperary, one of Ireland's most scenic counties; and how appropriate because I was in County Tipperary at the time. The county's sports teams often play with blue and gold striped jerseys, particularly the Tipperary GAA team.

It was also one of the first days that I have been exploring with my camera since starting chemotherapy.

I have been working right through my cancer treatment, with the exception of two weeks post-surgery, but haven't had much opportunity to get out and about and explore for myself.

I am still running my photography tours in Dublin, Belfast and Galway as well as the Giant's Causeway, Wicklow and Dingle so do send me an email to enquire about dates and rates.

Also I am still photographing for clients through

The lengthening days have been a real help mentally, allowing me to enjoy the warmer days and the greening of the countryside as seen in the image above from County Tipperary.
