Path to the Sun, Ireland in Winter - Photographing in the Mountains

Written by

This week has seen plenty of cold weather again, nothing too cold but enough for ice, frost and, in some parts of Ireland, snow.

So we headed into the mountains, to photograph some of the ice and frost, no snow here.

Here, on the climb towards the ridge and peak there was plenty of white on the hard forestry road.

And with the late afternoon sun was dipping just below that ridge, the perfect time for a starburst.

The rest of the walk took us to the base of the ridge and our destination for the day, to photograph the mountain towering above.

This was an easy enough hike over good surfaces but took approximately 1 hour 30 minutes without the photography time.

Join me, to photograph in the mountains of Ireland, the cities of Ireland or anywhere in between all year round.
