Into the Canopy, Beech Trees at the Dark Hedges

Written by
The Dark Hedges are one of the most famous locations associated with Game of Thrones. But of course for those of us from the area, from the fine Causeway Coast and Glens of Antrim, it was always a scenic avenue. Here, a view into the canopy of those centuries-old beech trees. Join me, Panoramic Ireland, to photograph in Ireland. From…

Two Donkeys in an Irish Field

Written by
Two friendly Irish donkeys in the Irish countryside, a field of green and yellow under a drumlin. The donkey, Equus asinus would have been a common sight in Ireland before the age of the tractor, now a rare enough treat to spot these friendly creatures although I have photographed and written about them before here on Panoramic Ireland. The drumlin…

Black and White Landscape, Ireland

Written by
I usually do prefer to work with colour images, for more than 99% of the photographs that I make they are in colour. But every so often I do enjoy a good black and white image such as here in this landscape image of a tumbledown cottage amongst the mountain scenery from the west of Ireland. Join Panoramic Ireland to…
Ireland has no shortage of fine mountain and valley scenery, despite having no large mountains - nothing over 1,040 metres above sea level. Here in late summer, one of many such Irish landscapes, the small buildings with tin roof, rusted from years of exposure - standing out amongst the green of the west of Ireland, mirrored in the bright colours…

Sunlight on the Stones, Giant's Causeway

Written by
There is no doubt that the Giant's Causeway is one of the most scenic places in Ireland and it definitely one of Panoramic Ireland's favourite places to photograph. Here, some of the 40,000 basalt columns of the causeway receive the last sunshine of the day before the sun sets for the evening. Crashing waves cover the lower rocks during a…
Red sky at night, shepherd's delight goes the old saying. And that red sky in the evening does usually bring good weather the following day. There is science to back up the ages old phrase, a red sky is caused by small particles of dust and other airborne particles are trapped in the atmosphere by high pressure. These particles block…

Offshore Wave, Ireland's Coast

Written by
Standing atop steep cliffs high above the Atlantic Ocean, I watched the power of the incoming swell as it met subsurface changes. A fairly calm ocean on a warm, late spring day yet this power came from almost nowhere. It looks small just like a small crashing wave but, for scale, a guillemot flying low over the surging white water…

Sunlight in the Valley, Ireland

Written by
The west of Ireland is one of Panoramic Ireland's favourite places to photograph, often the coast is preferred but sometimes, in cloudy conditions, the valleys of the ancient mountains are more scenic. Here, in County Mayo, sunshine moves through the valley from the steep, rocky sides to the lakey valley floor. Join me, Panoramic Ireland, to photograph in the west…

Blue Hour Seascape, Ireland

Written by
Blue hour, especially the morning blue hour, is a special time for photography. At this time of year in Ireland photographing the coast before sunrise to capture that time when all appears blue, before the strength of the summer sun shines from beyond the horizon requires an early start. It doesn't always look like this, indeed the heavy cloud seen…

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…
