Ireland is a small country, there is no doubt about that but it has surprising variation in geography across its landscape of 486km by 275km.

Here, one of the best known mountains in the country - especially around Dublin - is the Sugarloaf, the tallest peak seen here just right of centre.

This image comes from winter, on a Panoramic Ireland photography workshop in the Irish mountains.

The day was relatively warm, 12C and bright and sunny, after a short hike in the heather-clad mountains we finished the photography workshop by photographing the scene towards the sun to create starburst effects and to capture the beauty of this part of Ireland.

Afterwards we walked towards the bright sun along the small path through the heather.

Even if you can't make it to Ireland this year due to travel restrictions and COVID-19 concerns, autumn, winter (as here above) and spring is a fine time to visit, especially for photography.

Join Panoramic Ireland on a photography workshop throughout the year, right now from August 2020 onwards through winter and into spring and summer 2021.
