The coast of Ireland is perfect for landscape or seascape photography, and perfect for relaxation too. Here, a stormy Atlantic sunset over County Kerry's Blasket Islands makes you just want to stop and watch. Which is what we did on a photo tour to Ireland's most westerly peninsula, Dingle.
Light is important in photography, especially in landscape photography. I have written about the difference in light and its effects on the look and feel of a landscape image here. The two images in this post is from one of my favourite places in Ireland, the west coast - taken two nights apart.
For over 10 years now Panoramic Ireland's famous Dublin Photo Tours have been taking locals and visitors alike around Dublin's famous and not so famous sights. Yesterday was no exception with RM in from Austin, Texas. We headed off in the afternoon to explore some of the city's interesting places. The weather was fine, and it was my first full…
