Blue Hour on the Irish Sea Coast

It's all blue by the coast, before sunrise on the coast of Ireland and the stillness and calm of the open sea is immense.

Sometimes the weather isn't what we expect in landscape photography, and weather is a big factor in determining the look of an image. So landscape photographers are not just typical moaners about the weather, it's key to creating the final piece - we would stand out in any conditions to get an image and we only complain when it's the wrong weather for what we want.

In reality I complain very little about the weather, with enough patience it is possible to photograph any scene for any purpose. Although I have had a few difficult assignments over the years.

Here we expected a good sunrise with bright, clear, end of winter sunshine but we got thick cloud and we had to adapt accordingly. Blue hour seascapes are what we created and it was enjoyable.
