Notes From the Road, West of Ireland

Beautiful, stormy light in the West of Ireland as the sun's rays hit the choppy water of the Atlantic and the region's green fields. Beautiful, stormy light in the West of Ireland as the sun's rays hit the choppy water of the Atlantic and the region's green fields.

Despite assurances from all of the self-proclaimed experts on long range weather forecasting in Ireland, summer 2019 has not been as good as 2018 and is on par with 2017 as having been grey, windy, rainy, grey, windy, rainy...

It has at least been warm, but for photography it has been challenging. The winds, while not hurricane strength have nonetheless been constant in their presence and changeable in their direction and speed.

In other words, tripod-toppling weather.

Here is one from a tour in the west of Ireland, as the sun's rays shone through the thick, fast-moving cloud onto the choppy harbour waters of the Atlantic. The greens of the fields aglow with stormy light.

Scenes like these make it worthwhile braving the elements as the light isn't as striking as this always. I think it's worth getting battered by the elements to get an image like this, don't you?

Enjoy, share this post using your favourite social media and don't forget to stop by and say hello.
