Sheep in the Irish Countryside

Low visibility is a common problem in Ireland, landscape photography usually requires long, clear uninterrupted views so on this occasion we headed away from the big views and looked instead for scenes that suited the weather.

Here, we stopped on one of Panoramic Ireland's photography workshops in the Irish countryside to photograph sheep under a grey sky but a colourful landscape.

Lush green of late spring in Ireland both in the fields and the hedges, broken by bright orange-yellow flowers of gorse and white flowers of hawthorn.

I have of course written about and photographed sheep before, here's one from Wicklow and more sheep in this snowy image from the West of Ireland.

This image before heading on to photograph woodland scenes from recent posts. This is what the Irish would call a soft day, one with drizzle and light rain with no sign of sunshine. In fact, it was calm here but for most of the day it was quite windy and with heavy rain.

Don't forget that there is always something to photograph even on the worst of days.

Join Panoramic Ireland on a day photographing the woodlands, landscapes and the coast of Ireland.
