Glendalough Is Where You Might Find Me

Written by

Glendalough in Co. Wicklow is one of the places where you will find me with my camera, spending time walking and waiting for the right conditions.

Glendalough in Co. Wicklow

From the photographer's point of view there is plenty of interest- the lakes, hills, woods, streams and monastic remains all contribute to the atmosphere and at the right time of day it is a very tranquil place to be.

There are many places in Ireland, famous or not, that provide excellent locations for the photographer but some have attained such a level of popularity that to photograph them like this, careful planning is essential to make sure that the conditions will be right. I have been to Glendalough on numerous occasions over the years but I always find that it is when the weather is a little grey that the best images can be achieved, they are more atmospheric just like this one - an autumnal image of monastic ruins and ancient stone crosses surrounded by woodland with a serene feel to it.

I think that tomorrow, you will find me here, and you can read about another trip I took to Glendalough in 2013 on a day that I should have been somewhere else.
