Mosses and Ferns, an Irish Woodland Stream

Written by
Ireland is a green country, except when it snows and even in winter (February in the image above) that green still shows in the fields and woodlands of the Irish countryside. Here, in a fine little woodland of beech, ash and oak a cascading stream flows over rocks as the low rays of the winter sun brightens riparian scene of…
Panoramic Ireland's award-winning Dublin Photo Tours are still, for the moment, unavailable for booking but will be back sometime this year when the easing of Coronavirus restrictions allows. At the moment restrictions are not planned to be eased until March 5th 2021 but this may change and easing of restrictions will most definitely will not be quick and full for…
While spring traditionally begins in Ireland on the 1st of February, on Saint Brigid's Day, meteorological winter continues through until the 1st of March. We have had some snow already in 2021 here in Ireland but most has now melted with warmer and wetter temperatures returning. In fact we had a 14C temperature change in 48 hours from -7 degrees…

Rugged Landscapes of the West of Ireland

Written by
The West of Ireland, it's the place that I photograph most often in Ireland along with the Antrim Coast and Dublin. Here, a typical western scene of rugged mountains, very often coated with a soft green of grass and, here where you see the reddishness, bracken that has died back for the winter. Bracken is a type of fern Pteridium…

View from the Road, the West of Ireland

Written by
Morning, and a thin band of sunrise sunlight pierces thick cloud to illuminate the lower slopes of a cloud-covered mountain in the west of Ireland. Roads like these take you into the splendid scenic views in Ireland as they twist and turn, roll and flow through the rocky, boggy and lush green landscapes of the Irish countryside. Join me, Panoramic…

Landscapes of the West of Ireland, Connemara

Written by
The sky above the west of Ireland, in particular Connemara, is more impressive than those of the rest of Ireland. Big, open blue skies and stormy skies stretching for miles are the likely scenes awaiting the photographer and visitor alike. Panoramic Ireland's photography workshops run all year round in Connemara, in Dublin and throughout Ireland. Contact me today to find…

Winter Seascape Photography in Ireland

Written by
It's winter now and my mind turns to coastal landscapes. Here, one from the Antrim Coast of Sheep Island. Crashing waves batter both sides of the small island, for millennia a well known landmark off this part of the Causeway Coast but now more famous from its appearance in HBO's Game of Thrones. Sheep Island rises some 30 metres above…
Golden light slowly fills in from the east as sunrise approaches on the Irish Sea coast of Ireland. Mountains hidden by the night slowly emerge from darkness casting off their shrouds of cloud, gently pushed by the morning breeze. It might not be possible to travel to Ireland right now, as we approach the end of 2020 but in spring…

Autumn Rainbow, Glendalough

Written by
Pots of gold they say, that's what you will find at the end of a rainbow. I'm not so sure, I have photographed many rainbows over the years and upon inspection have never found any gold - perhaps those pesky leprechauns got there before me. Here, the round tower and small church of the monastic city at Glendalough are seen…

In the Woods, a Bright Clearing

Written by
The greenery of a woodland clearing is a relaxing place to stop and admire the scenery of the natural environment. Here, a mixed woodland of native Irish trees on the left gives way to imported, planted sitka on the right, the forest here becomes dark and uninviting. But in this small boundary area, grasses and mosses grow in the light-filled…
