Swirling Water in the Irish Countryside

Today I headed into the mountains, the day started cold and grey with a lot of driven rain.

Perhaps not the best choice to be high on the mountain tops in Ireland in wet and windy weather so I went instead to a sheltered woodland to photograph streams and flowers - where the bluebells are still in fine colour.

Here I gave full attention to the small stream, cascading through the woodland but with little flow there wasn't a lot to capture that impressed.

So to the chute here feeding water into a bowl where it swirled beneath vivid green mosses and plants, the remnants of last year's autumn leaf fall still visible.

It does look a little bit like an eye, don't you think?

Join Panoramic Ireland (that's me) on a photography workshop into the mountains of Ireland to photograph scenes like these whether you want to improve your photographic skills, how to make the most of inclement weather, find new places or learn a new photographic technique such as long exposure photography - contact me to find out more.

More images of those bluebells to follow but in the meantime, here are some from a woodland in County Sligo.
