Ireland's Wild and Rugged Coastline

Stormy, storm, storm on the coast of Ireland - Irish Photography Workshops Stormy, storm, storm on the coast of Ireland - Irish Photography Workshops

The wild, stormy and rugged coast of Ireland varies from sandy beaches to rocky headlands.

Here seen on one of the many stormy days driving wave after wave onto the coast, swirling white water draining over black rocks.

I often get asked about bad weather and photography such as is it possible to photograph on stormy days, what about 'bad' weather.

What is 'bad' weather? Weather affects the feeling of an image, there really is no such thing as bad weather in photography. A sunny image with calm seas can lack impact, even lighting is not as interesting as contrasty conditions typical of a stormy day and the motion of the ocean upon the shore is one of dramatic interest.

Storms bring waves, Ireland being a small island where you can only be 80 miles from the sea means a trip to the coast as seen in this image is very easy and worthwhile.

The challenge of landscape photography is of course to deal with the elements, anticipate the weather using knowledge and the forecasts and be ready to adapt to what local conditions are like.

Stormy days sometimes bring sunny weather between the windy, wet weather such as here on the Antrim Coast.

Join me on a photography workshop on the coast of Ireland, contact me for dates and locations for Panoramic Ireland's coastal photography workshops in Ireland 2018 and 2019.

    I need a copy of this hanging in my bedroom so that I can see it, feel it, and breathe it everyday, first thing in the morning, and right before bed.
