Weather plays a big part in outdoor photography, here the evening was cloudy and getting dark after a decent amount of sunlight during the day. With little hope for sunlight we instead hoped for some interesting clouds and we weren't disappointed. There was plenty of movement and gaps in the cloud cover. Blue hour came a little early but was…
Ireland is usually seen as the Emerald Isle, with its abundance of green landscapes and old buildings. Weather plays a big part in the mood of the Irish countryside, and often the conditions make it difficult to photograph those stereotypical, iconic scenes. Soft scenes like this, with waves washing gently over pebbles below a grey sky - most of the…
Photographing seascapes in Ireland is never boring. The varied geology of the Irish coast makes it interesting to say the least. Here along the Wild Atlantic Way many rocks are evident, sedimentary layers are visible inclining out of the Atlantic while behind igneous rocks form the foreshore. The rough sheep grazing land stretching uphill is dotted with rocks. More seascapes…
Bright sunlight and architecture always works well in photography. What often doesn't work is shooting against or towards the sun, contre-jour - as seen here in this image. Photographing through the windows here has allowed me to make the most of the tricky lighting, giving a starburst effect and emphasising the strong sunlight and shadows in the window heads. Join…
As I write this, in the middle of August, Ireland sits under a large rainy weather system, it's warm with little wind but a lot of rain. So much so that there is a weather warning in place for 14 counties. A storm will arrive later in the week, the remnants of tropical storm Kyle coming across the Atlantic. Here,…
Sheep find shelter on a lonely, almost treeless landscape in the Irish mountains. At the end of a photography workshop, after photographing a small river and waterfalls we found this Irish scene of lush green trees, empty landscape and sheep sheltering behind tufts of vegetation. And of course it made a scene worth photographing, different to those landscapes that we…
Ireland is a small country, there is no doubt about that but it has surprising variation in geography across its landscape of 486km by 275km. Here, one of the best known mountains in the country - especially around Dublin - is the Sugarloaf, the tallest peak seen here just right of centre. This image comes from winter, on a Panoramic…
I have written about Connemara here on panoramicireland.com many times before, including here. It's a place that I know well, a place that I have photographed many times. Often I have stood in the rain, capturing the misty scenes of this part of Ireland, many times I have captured fine sunsets and explored the region's beauty. Here a scene of…
Stormy day spray off the sea brings a fine double rainbow that extends below the horizon. Little is visible of the scenes beyond, the rugged Irish coastline extending beyond into the distance. But the presence of a double rainbow, seemingly floating in the view offshore, is enough to make the rainy afternoon worthy of exploring with camera especially with that…
With the relaxation of travel restrictions in Ireland in recent weeks, and the news that my post-cancer checkups will be back soon, I took a visit to the coast. And I chose the Copper Coast on Ireland's south coast, County Waterford where I run photography workshops. This fine section of Irish coast doesn't form part of the Wild Atlantic Way…
