Ballinastoe Woods, Wicklow

Written by
Wicklow is not short of scenic locations for photography and one of the most scenic of them all is Ballinastoe Woods. Here, a boardwalk ascends through the forest, part of a long walking route through the mountains and Irish countryside. It's easy to imagine this place as enchanted, inhabited perhaps by a púca, one of the mythological creatures in Irish…

Colour of Autumn in Ireland

Written by
Lots of colour in places as we head towards the end of October, the recent good spell of warm weather is over and colder, more usual, temperatures have followed. A proliferation of non-green colours, but actually there is still plenty of green after a summer without extreme heat or an overabundance of sunshine. It's an incredibly scenic time of year…
Autumn is on its way here in Ireland, as we stopped to photograph the woodland stream beech leaves were falling constantly, not in large numbers but solely and constantly like the lightest snowfall. Seen here, the bright reds of those fallen beech leaves lying on rich green moss-covered rocks alongside the woodland stream. I'm sure there is some statistical analysis…

Reds and Rocks in Donegal, Ireland

Written by
Ireland's fine scenery, as in a recent post looks as good in grey and cloudy weather as in sunshine and blue skies. A case in point, here in the northwest, in County Donegal this landscape of granite mountains covered in a soft, boggy carpet with just delicate highlights and shadows across the empty scene. This, a glaciated valley features steep…

Scenic Ireland, Even on a Grey Day - Donegal

Written by
I often get asked about photography and visiting Ireland, one of the most common questions is "What is there to photograph when the weather isn't good?" Well even in summer, like here in this image, the weather can be grey and often rainy but it's still scenic. And yet it is how Ireland often is, not the bright sunshine and…

October in Ireland

Written by
Are you visiting Ireland out of season? While most head to the Emerald Isle during the longer days of summer when temperatures are higher, the autumn, winter and spring offer much more interest photographically. Recently I was asked what Ireland is like in October, is it worth coming to for photography and of course my answer was indeed it is…
Ireland is not short of fantastic coastlines and of course as an Irish landscape photographer seascapes make up an important part of my collecton. It should come as no surprise too that for the workshops and tours that I organise throughout Ireland, I recommend the coast often and get asked about the coast. Here, a scene from a cloudy evening.…

Ireland's Scenic Cliffs

Written by
Not as famous as the better known stretches of coastal cliffs, this seascape is still a worthy contender for one of Ireland's most scenic. An empty quarter scenic, with no one to be seen at all, it was relaxing to sit and watch the calm Atlantic until sunset clicking the shutter on our cameras every so often. Join me, Panoramic…

Cows on the Hill, Wexford, Ireland

Written by
I have photographed many cows throughout Ireland over the years but rarely somewhere as scenic as this. On top of a grassy hill in County Wexford, the south-eastiest part of Ireland's sunny south-east we came across a herd of grazing cattle enjoying the bright summer weather. And here it was as we were photographing the bright pastoral scene that my…

Path Through the Bluebells, Ireland

Written by
There is little more enjoyable in spring than walking through a woodland filled with bluebells. Here, a path leading through the scene deeper into the forest. Bluebells Hyacinthoides non-scripta carpet hillsides and woodlands in April and May each year in Ireland. And here on the photography workshop in the Irish countryside saw us photograph in ideal conditions with sidelighting that…
