A Path Through the Woods in Spring, Ireland

It's an exciting time here in Ireland, Saint Patrick's Day has just finished, the Irish rugby team won the Six Nations and remains at number one in the world.

It is also the equinox, so we now move into the six months of the year when daylight is longer than darkness.

And while there isn't much in the way of summer colour just yet, the bright and fresh green of spring is on the way.

Here, during some inclement weather, this laneway sheltered by large rhododendron shrubs provided bewitching views further and further into the remote Irish countryside.

Unfortunately rhodendendron is a very invasive plant but where it is managed properly it can give unique views like this, followed by bright colour of rhododendron flowers in late spring, early summer.

Join me in 2023 to photograph in the Irish countryside such as on the Connemara coast.
