Situated in the corner of County Tyrone, Northern Ireland's largest county, the remains of Harry Avery's castle sit atop a hill on the edge of a valley. The twin structures projecting up here were actually an unusual tower house rather than an outer defensive gatehouse. Belonging to a 14th century Irish chieftain it was destroyed in the early 17th century…
The Sperrins are Northern Ireland's most extensive upland area, the mountains are very low reaching only 678m at Sawel with very little prominence. Here they are seen at sunset with bright golden winter sunlight under a fine sky. This is an isolated area, often cut off by winter snows and with almost no public transport but few people live in…
Ah, the notoriously bad weather in Ireland. Well there's a reputation that the Irish climate is unsuitable for photography. But it's not all true. Sure there are stormy days, rainy days and grey sky days. But there are plenty of blue sky days, sunny days, calm days and even on those bad days there is always something to photograph. It…

The image above is of Cork, the River Lee at night and Saint Finbarre's Cathedral. I photographed this fine scene for Eater, the world's most popular food website as part of their Where …
Donegal is Ireland's most northerly county, its peninsulae jutting out into the North Atlantic with Malin Head being the northernmost point on the island. And it is a scenic part of Ireland, the coast is long with rocky sections, cliffs, sandy beaches and with more than a few lighthouses it lives up to its reputation as a rugged place.
I do like photographing in Ireland in winter, the countryside is mostly empty and the weather can be fine. Here it was a foggy day with little chance of a break in the cloud overhead so instead of heading for a big wide open scene we headed for a good little woodland where we could make use of the ethereal…
Landscape and nature photography in Ireland doesn't stop just because it is winter. Landscape photographers enjoy the winter just as much as any other season, there is always the chance of snow of course and the bright clear winter sunlight. But even a woodland, with trees devoid of leaves can look fine in winter.
The sun sets on another day, another solar year passes, the days get longer from now on - Ireland and the northern hemisphere pass the the winter solstice. In Ireland the winter solstice has long been an important point of the year, Ireland's most famous monument at Newgrange is aligned with sunrise on the winter solstice (December 21/22) - read…
What to photograph in Ireland when the weather isn't good? That's a question I get asked a lot, and it isn't difficult to answer. There is always a fine scene to photograph in any locality on any day. On this occasion as the rain began to fall, it was this lake in the west of Ireland, the soft and rugged…
It's almost Christmas, the end of another year and another decade; here at Panoramic Ireland we have been busy photographing Dublin as always. 2019 has reached December and, for the second year, more than a dozen of Dublin's buildings and streets have been illuminated to give the city a more welcoming feel.
