You can never guarantee snow in Ireland but it does snow a little every year even if only in the mountains.

Here, the famous MacGillycuddy's Reeks with Carrauntoohil the highest peak at 1038.6 metres above sea level, it is Ireland's highest mountain and only one of three peaks that top 1,000 metres.

The snow line can be seen easily and the tops of the peaky mountains almost match the clouds moving out of scene to the left.

These mountains sit on the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, home of the famous circuit scenic drive the Ring of Kerry but are seen here from Dingle, the peninsula that brings you as far west as it is possible to go in Ireland.

The foreground is bathed in a golden glow, typical of the clear winter light on sunny days in Ireland.

Ireland's Dingle Peninsula on a Stormy September Day

Sometimes the Irish weather is not pleasant for photography but with patience and local knowledge it is possible to get fine images of the rugged, green Island in the Atlantic.

We went to Dingle in search of bright colourful scenes of mountains and the Atlantic coast like from this occasion a few weeks ago: https://panoramicireland.com/photo-tours-blog/coumeenole-beach-dingle-kerry-slea-head

What we got, however, were the remnants of Hurricane Dorian blowing across Ireland's most westerly peninsula.

Coumeenole Beach, Dingle

Ireland''s west coast, the Wild Atlantic Way conjures up images of stormy ocean waves and barren rocky headlands.

And for much of its 2,500 or so kilometres it is that way, but it isn't barren and not always rocky; it is visually scenic.

Panoramic Ireland returned to Dingle recently for a photography workshop in one of Ireland's most beautiful places.

Here is the famous Coumeenole beach, complete with gull and those gentle waves that the Atlantic sometimes gives us. To the right is the rocky headland of Dunmore Head and the Blasket Islands beyond.

The coast of Ireland is perfect for landscape or seascape photography, and perfect for relaxation too.

Here, a stormy Atlantic sunset over County Kerry's Blasket Islands makes you just want to stop and watch. Which is what we did on a photo tour to Ireland's most westerly peninsula, Dingle.

Ireland's Dingle Peninsula

Dingle is one of Ireland's most popular tourist locations, both for overseas visitors and locals, and with good reason.

Here, the lofty peaks of the narrow peninsula are overshadowed by clouds, casting their shadows onto the brown and green valley below.

The valley, carved by ice retains a few lakes and the quiet, peaceful feel so characteristic of the west of Ireland.

Dingle, Looking Different

I have been photographing and leading photography workshops in Dingle, County Kerry for many years now.

On a recent visit we made more than one stop at the famous Dunquin Harbour out on the west of the peninsula, close to Ireland's (and Europe's) most westerly point.

Seen here is one of the images created on that workshop, can you spot what makes it different to the typical view of this iconic Irish location?

Send me your answers in the comments section below or via the contact page.

There are many elements that go into creating an image.

There's the old favourites such as composition, shutter speed, aperture and so on. Then there's location; but often patience is the key element required in photography, particularly landscape or seascape photography such as in the image seen above.

Here a scene from a coastal landscape photography workshop on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way in Dingle, County Kerry. This is Star Wars filming territory and on this occasion we spent quite some time waiting for the rain to pass us by and when it did, we were greeted with this scene looking across the Atlantic towards neighbouring Iveragh.

Stunning and worth the wait I'm sure you'll agree.

I often get asked in advance of photography tours and workshops "What will we do if it rains, do you have a contingency?", well yes we will usually photograph something majestic, because it is in the stormy mixed weather conditions we often get in Ireland that we see the most atmospheric light. The ephemeral rays of sunshine lighting up a portion of the scene in the distance, a bright sky that tells of the drama that has passed or is about to pass.

We can't always promise great weather but always a great time photographing the landscapes and street scenes of Ireland.

The essence of travel photography, in Ireland. Patience required, fun guaranteed and you're going to learn a lot!

Send me an email if this sounds like an experience you would like to enjoy.

Summer Sun in Dingle, County Kerry


Another of my favourite workshops from 2017 was this one from County Kerry, here we have the bright summer sun shining over County Kerry's famous Dingle Peninsula - probably the most popular non-Dublin destination in Ireland.

In the distance the mountains of Kerry can be seen, the highest amongst these are the Macgillycuddy's Reeks with Ireland's highest mountain Carrauntuohill. On the right of the image the Atlantic Ocean sitting between the Iveragh and Dingle peninsulae.

Panoramic Ireland, that's me by the way, run photo tours and workshops throughout Ireland from the scenic landscapes of Dingle as seen here to the urban streets of Dublin and Belfast. For more on my Dingle photography workshops in 2018 see this link or contact me through the menu above.

A Few Days in Dingle

As I mentioned in previous posts, this week saw me returning to Dingle in Ireland's southwest.

And I wasn't disappointed, neither of course was JM who joined me from the USA for one of my one-to-one photography workshops in Ireland.
