After my post yesterday showing the beauty of the lake and mountain on which Kylemore Abbey is situated here is a more focused image of the building, once the home of a wealthy London Doctor called Mitchell Henry. Kylemore was built in the late 1860s and Mitchell Henry later went on to become MP for the area, in 1875 after …
One of Ireland's most famous buildings, Kylemore Abbey is situated in a scenic position at the foot of a mountain surrounded by lakes. More to come on the abbey and its history in my next post, for now enjoy the fine landscapes and reflections from Connemara. Subscribe to the monthly newsletter:

The lanes of Ireland are a favourite photographic subject of mine. Here, the final leaves of 2018 were falling - covering the ground with russety autumnal colour as the bright sunlight shines, casting shadows and making the whole scene more enticing. Here are a few more of my favourite laneway scenes that I have photographed over the years: https://panoramicireland.com/blog-ireland-guide/an-irish-laneway-with-mountains-in-the-distance https://panoramicireland.com/photo-tours-blog/ireland-midlands-laneway-colour-sunset-sky-landscape-photography…

Sometimes, as here in this image the journey is as scenic as the destination. On our way to a photography workshop in the west of Ireland, heavy rain arrived - contrary to the forecast for the day, so we stopped to photograph what was only one of many scenic roads on our Wild Atlantic Way drive. This section of narrow,…
The West of Ireland is a perfect location for landscape photography, thankfully it's a place that I know very well. Rugged mountains, wide open landscapes and plenty of interesting sky as well as the culture and heritage of the western seaboard make this area worthy of a visit but specifically for the photographer it has everything to offer.
Ireland's climate brings lots of mixed weather and with that mixed weather comes the potential for rainbows. Here while out on a photography tour with BY from the Pacific Northwest of the USA, we were greeted with this scene after a little bit of a rain shower. I've photographed many rainbows over the years and they remain a photographic favourite.…
Sometimes the weather isn't just perfect. More than the occasional storm passes over Ireland, here's I went out to photograph the end of a storm on the Irish Sea close to Dublin.
Waterfalls look at their best in spring or autumn with fresh green leaves or fall colour being situated often, but not always, in woodland settings. Now, at the end of autumn I will probably not visit many waterfalls until spring, there are a few that I will photograph over the course of the winter but none like this. Here, the…
The waterfall in autumn is a photographer's dream, heavy rainfall, colourful leaves and fewer tourists mean a more scenic adventure and better images to be made. Here is one case in point, taken during a damp, dark few days in autumn. I spent an hour walking along trails, following the signs towards the waterfall - until the signs stopped.
