Sunset Among the Stones

Written by
There are currently plenty of challenges with visiting Ireland, the country is now the most expensive in Europe for the cost of living, hotels are charging astronomical rates and the recent car hire challenges are being reported almost daily in the international press. And of course that's assuming you can get here, flights are relatively cheap but with many cancelled…

Summer Sunset, Colour from Ireland

Written by
A fine summer sunset greeted me on a recent visit west. Colour filled the sky after the late evening sun set and only the sound of birds and lapping waves could be heard. A busy few weeks for Panoramic Ireland covering various parts of Ireland including Dublin, the Antrim Coast, Connemara and Dingle. Join me here in Ireland to photograph…
It's a busy time for Panoramic Ireland at the moment, the long summer days see me busy leading photography tours and workshops in Ireland. I have also been photographing a lot of music concerts, but on a rare quiet evening after photographing for a client I made my way to one of my favourite places to photograph. Here, stone circles…

Guillemots Gathered in their Masses

Written by
A recent visit to the coast brought me to a seabird sanctuary where I photographed many types of wild birds including puffins, razorbills, fulmars and guillemots. This image, and the others below, made me think of the famous Black Sabbath song War Pigs with its lyrics changed to "Guillemots gathered in their masses, just like witches at black masses..." Guillemots…
A recent visit to the Antrim Coast, one of the finest sections of coast in the world, saw me heading off to Rathlin Island pictured to the left in this image. A quiet evening with a little cloud, and unusually for the Antrim Coast, little wind, saw some colour and movement in the scene as golden hour gave way to…

Spring at the Giant's Causeway

Written by
The Giant's Causeway needs no introduction here on Panoramic Ireland, it's a favourite place to photograph. Here a quiet moment in spring looking up towards the headland along the basalt columns in contrast to the images below that show the columns and the dramatic, crashing waves of the North Atlantic. Throughout 2022 I will be returning here to one of…
Sunset in the west of Ireland, the spring equinox occurred today March 20th, this sees the sun pass the equator and means that all places on earth effectively receive the same amount of night. In Ireland, the days started to become longer than night on the 18th of March, a few days ago - this is known as the Equilux.…
With the temperature warming fast and rain forecast, I took the opportunity to walk into the mountains to photograph the snowy landscape. On the steep road up into the mountains I met a woman, man and their dog, they told me of a long-abandoned village in the mountains; we chatted for a few minutes before I was on my way…
Ireland is currently under a blanket of snow and while spring has started snow is not unusual in March. Indeed a few years ago, in 2018, we had heavy snowfall on Saint Patrick's Day and much of the month we had heavy snow with the 'Beast from the East' - although that term has taken on new meaning in recent…

Evening in the Mountains, Ireland

Written by
There is some wild weather on the way for Ireland this week, stormy winds and rain. I am planning a visit to the west of Ireland soon and have been looking through images from previous visits. Here I found this one from 2014 when the late evening sun, partially obscured by fast moving clouds, momentarily illuminated the rocky mountainsides above…
