Stone Bridge and Autumn River, Ireland

Autumn arrives, the clocks have gone back in Ireland and the daylight length is now quite short.

Here, the trees have lost most of their leaves those not carried by the flow of the water remaining on the rocks and riverbanks.

This bridge is large, more than 12ft to the centre of the arch from the river below designed to take traffic across the small but steep sided valley, seen here with low flow but a raging torrent in heavy rains.

For the moment, Ireland is in Level 5 lockdown which means that travel is limited to 5km except for work, school and essential purposes - much of the countryside is looking autumnal and winter will be here by the time we exit Level 5.

Enjoy the view and don't forget to check back for more posts regularly. Here's one of beech trees and an Irish waterfall in autumn.

From the coast to the mountains - a few weeks ago I headed to the coast for sunrise, the morning's forecast was for sunshine and a bright start to the day.

In reality it was dull and grey and there was no hint of a colourful sunrise.

I photographed and videoed at the Forty Foot in Dublin before making my way into the mountains.

Having checked the weather radar it looked like better weather was to be found away from Dublin.

I found the sunshine after a little rain and the morning got brighter and warmer. I stopped at a woodland stream to photograph some woodland colour and character.

Enjoy the video from the day's journey through the scenic Irish countryside.

Autumn on Ireland's Green Roads

Autumn has arrived this week with the passing on the 22nd of September of the Equinox and the arrival of cold weather, minus temperatures and frosts overnight.

The Irish landscape is still green though, and the fresh weather is bringing quite a bit of blue sky.

Here, a green road or country lane meanders through the rolling green hills of the Irish countryside.

Ireland has plenty of famous avenues, the Dark Hedges being one, but those without hordes of people are those that I prefer.

Join me, Panoramic Ireland, for a photographic adventure in Ireland - from the coast to the mountains.

Beech Trees in Autumn

Beech trees fagus sylvatica are one of the finest trees to find in an Irish woodland.

This non-native species was introduced at some point in history, many centuries ago at least, and has become so widespread that it would appear to be a native Irish tree.

The Autumn Path, Ireland

Autumn colour from the leafy woodland path in Ireland. 

Each year the Irish countryside brightens with the colour from deciduous leaves turning as seen here. 

It's a time to enjoy photography, autumn is a photographer's favourite - is it yours?

Autumn Colour on Ireland's Lanes

Panoramic Ireland is no stranger to photographing autumnal scenes with the colour and majesty of nature as we head beyond the autumnal equinox, see here for more posts from Ireland's lovely countryside.

Here, in a rural part of the Emerald Isle, a narrow grass-covered laneway heads along the edge of green fields bounded by brightly coloured trees and shrubs bearing in this case the yellows of autumn.

A fine scene don't you think? Have you been to Ireland in autumn?

This week I have also been photographing some iconic bands, including 1980s megastars a-ha who have started their world tour in Ireland - see more here.

Autumn Reflections and Colour

It's a bright and colourful time of year, autumn. Sunny days have fine, clear light and the colour of autumn foliage makes any journey into the countryside colourful.

Six months since my chemotherapy finished it is exhilarating to be back in the countryside photographing the colour of another fine autumn.

An Irish Woodland in Autumn

We're back to that time of year again, summer has ended and winter is on its way. For now it's colourful autumn.

Here in a gently sloping woodland, a small stream cuts a narrow path soon becoming a river but for now it's all gentle and pretty.

And of course it's colourful.

Autumn Lanes of Fallen Leaves

The lanes of Ireland are a favourite photographic subject of mine.

Here, the final leaves of 2018 were falling - covering the ground with russety autumnal colour as the bright sunlight shines, casting shadows and making the whole scene more enticing.

Here are a few more of my favourite laneway scenes that I have photographed over the years:

The Waterfall at End of Autumn

Waterfalls look at their best in spring or autumn with fresh green leaves or fall colour being situated often, but not always, in woodland settings.

Now, at the end of autumn I will probably not visit many waterfalls until spring, there are a few that I will photograph over the course of the winter but none like this.

Here, the small waterfall looks good after a long few days of rain.
