Snow in the Mountains, Ireland January 2021

Written by
It's still winter for now, just for a day as according to Irish tradition the 1st of February sees the start of spring on Saint Brigid's Day. Ireland has had some snow, as in the image above, this winter but not as much as Britain. This is usual, Ireland typically receives less extreme weather than Britain where there has been…
Well, the time has finally arrived, it's time for Panoramic Ireland's final post for 2020. The year started so well, with a lot of promise then quickly descended into a state of...not so good. So it's time to bring some hope into the new year and look forward to a better year, starting with January. I would normally do a…
A fine day over part of Ireland today, and a lot of rain too ahead of Storm Ellen which will bring strong winds to the west and south of the island. I was in both parts, rain and sun. I've had my first CT scan of 2020 and bloods taken for tumour marker tests - again the first of this…

Triangle Field and Sheep, Ireland

Written by

The Mightiest Tree in the Forest

Written by
The mightiest tree in the forest, an Irish woodland. A recent visit through an Irish woodland saw me find and photograph the mightiest tree in the forest, pictured here. It can't be done, to cut down this tree with a herring - I thought to myself. Well, I did find a shrubbery before finishing up on my quest to photograph…

Written by

Cancer, Chemotherapy and my Camera

Written by
Sunset from one of my favourite vantage points, looking west towards the setting sun. It has been a difficult year so far, 2019, a diagnosis of cancer in January, an operation to remove a large tumour and this week, at the end of March, chemotherapy. At each stage as throughout the past 20 years, photography has been a big part…
