The Foggy Forests of Ireland - Green, Red and Ethereal

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 atmosphere that fog so often gives.

The beech trees were covered in almost luminous, bright green moss and the forest floor carpeted in red/brown beech leaves, and in between all of that the fog permeated the whole place.

We photographed more on this day and the following day we had plenty of good, bright sunshine to give us the landscapes scenes that we wanted.

Join me on a photography tour in Ireland.
