I've been exploring the Irish countryside, photographing landscapes, rivers, woodlands and waterfalls a lot recently. The weather has been mixed with some fine sunny days and some rainy spells, but the Irish countryside looks great in any case.
Photographing woodland streams and waterfalls in Ireland, the Irish countryside is filled with places like these. During a cloudy afternoon, Panoramic Ireland headed into the mountains and found interesting scenes of sheep grazing in fields, cloudy mountain sides and into the woodlands to photograph streams, colour and waterfalls as seen here that suited the conditions. Soon after the weather cleared,…
Street photography can through up some unusual situations and give rise to interesting photographs. Here, a visiting bishop arrives, Saint Patrick maybe, with his travel case on the cobbled alleys of Dublin and stops to talk with, or perhaps berate, the street vendors with their sandwich boards advertising Thai massages in Dublin.
Low visibility is a common problem in Ireland, landscape photography usually requires long, clear uninterrupted views so on this occasion we headed away from the big views and looked instead for scenes that suited the weather. Here, we stopped on one of Panoramic Ireland's photography workshops in the Irish countryside to photograph sheep under a grey sky but a colourful…
I've been photographing bluebells for twenty years now, but I only recently realised that I have few posts here on Panoramic Ireland on bluebells. Here a mixture of architecture and landscape in the Irish countryside as bluebells grow amongst ferns on the woodland floor below the old stone bridge.
No landscape photographer's spring catalogue would be complete without images of bluebells hyacinthoides non-scripta carpeting a woodland floor. Here on our photography workshop that also dealt with photographing in inclement weather, as we photographed streams and forests so too did we concentrate on the colour in front of us. While they didn't carpet every square inch of the beech woodland…
Today I headed into the mountains, the day started cold and grey with a lot of driven rain. Perhaps not the best choice to be high on the mountain tops in Ireland in wet and windy weather so I went instead to a sheltered woodland to photograph streams and flowers - where the bluebells are still in fine colour. Here…
Silhouettes often make a useful tool in photography, strong lines breaking the horizon or the shape of a majestic tree outlined against the colour of an evening sky. Silhouettes serve to show off the sky, the photographer exposing for the highlights rather than the shadows to allow the shapes of the subject to come into its own.
The blue hour and golden hour that both occur every morning and evening are rightly considered by landscape photographers to be the best times of day to capture scenic landscapes. Lasting for a short time either side of sunrise and sunset the ephemeral light is soft and colourful, sympathetic to the natural landscapes.
As the sun sets on another day, after photographing some of Ireland's fine landscapes and scenes we turned our attention to the setting sun and these trees and buildings silhouetted against the bright blue sky.
