Autumn Rainbow, Glendalough

Written by
Pots of gold they say, that's what you will find at the end of a rainbow. I'm not so sure, I have photographed many rainbows over the years and upon inspection have never found any gold - perhaps those pesky leprechauns got there before me. Here, the round tower and small church of the monastic city at Glendalough are seen…

In the Woods, a Bright Clearing

Written by
The greenery of a woodland clearing is a relaxing place to stop and admire the scenery of the natural environment. Here, a mixed woodland of native Irish trees on the left gives way to imported, planted sitka on the right, the forest here becomes dark and uninviting. But in this small boundary area, grasses and mosses grow in the light-filled…
Rivers, streams, waterfalls and deciduous woodlands are a favourite photographic subject of mine and for many photographers. Here, it is easy to see why. An old stone bridge sits spans a small river as it flows through a green, autumnal woodland before cascading over a six foot fall. Fallen leaves and bracken add plenty of colour to the woodland floor.…
It's still autumn here in Ireland and the countryside is looking particularly scenic at the moment. Here, a colourful scene of fallen leaves, moss-covered rocks and flowing water - a sense of calm can be felt in this place. The river flows, and after heavy recent rains the scene will have changed, leaves washed away and rocks moved, but the…

Subtle Reflections in the Irish Landscape

Written by
Reflections are an important part of landscape photography. Sometimes these reflections are bright and colourful and sometimes, like here, more subtle and subdued like a typical west of Ireland scene. Join Panoramic Ireland in 2021 for landscape and cityscape photography workshops in Ireland.

Vouchers for Photography Workshops

Written by
As I write it appears that Ireland is again heading for lockdown, the Irish government are meeting tomorrow Monday 19th October to decide on moving the country to Level 4 or Level 5, perhaps something in between. I have just created a new voucher for a photography workshop in Dublin, and I chose the image above of a stormy morning…

October in Ireland, Sunshine at the Coast

Written by
The myth that Ireland suffers from bad weather year round, especially outside of the summer months, is definitely not true. Autumn and Winter in Ireland can be full of fine, clear and bright weather, just like in this image from the spectacular coastline. Low tide exposes golden sands as a small stream slowly trickles towards the steady motion of small…

Autumn on Ireland's Green Roads

Written by
Autumn has arrived this week with the passing on the 22nd of September of the Equinox and the arrival of cold weather, minus temperatures and frosts overnight. The Irish landscape is still green though, and the fresh weather is bringing quite a bit of blue sky. Here, a green road or country lane meanders through the rolling green hills of…

And Night Draws In - Blue Hour Begins in Ireland

Written by
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…
