Above The Snowline, Comeragh Mountains

Snowy ridge in Ireland's Comeragh Mountains Snowy ridge in Ireland's Comeragh Mountains

Not very high, the mountains of Ireland are nevertheless full of character and are actually often dusted with snow in the winter.

At 1,038m, Carrauntoohil is the highest point in Ireland; we don't have much in the way of high altitude but in the winter there is snow at 300m and above in many of the mountains for some of the year.

Here are some of my previous posts on snow in Ireland, some from February 2018 and others from years of image making and touring in Ireland:


This image is of a craggy, well-weathered ridge in the Comeragh Mountains of County Waterford where I hiked above the snowline in February 2018, just this month as I write this.

Why not join me, Panoramic Ireland, in the mountains, or the lakes or woodlands of Ireland to learn how to photograph scenes like these. You don't have to be super fit and we can make it less epic by keeping to the easy to get to places.
