Dingle Peninsula - Dunquin and the Blaskets at Sunset

The longer days of the year are on their way again, we are now more than 1/10th of the way through 2020 and Panoramic Ireland is running photography tours and workshops to Ireland's beautiful Dingle Peninsula.

Here in the image above, the sun begins to set on the Atlantic, on Ireland's most westerly peninsula with the Blasket Islands lying just offshore.

County Kerry is a favourite location for our photography tours and workshops in Ireland and Dingle is one of the most popular places in Ireland.

Join Panoramic Ireland in Dingle or Dublin for a photography tour in 2020. To find out more, Contact us or use the booking form below.

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.

Sunset Killarney - Lough Leane

Killarney is one of Ireland's most scenic places, here the famous lakes and mountains just outside of town are looking great at sunset on a cloudy day.

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.

Killarney, Ireland's original tourist destination town is as scenic as it gets anywhere in the country.

Situated on a lake - Lough Leane, and surrounded by mountains including Ireland's highest Carrauntoohil this is a place that has seen a lot of cameras and photographers over the decades since the invention of photography.

As I was leading a photography workshop in Killarney I took an extra day for myself and captured some footage of Lough Leane a bronze age copper mining area, the cloud-topped mountains and the rowers, swans and other wildlife using the lake in the late evening.

The video finishes with an image of Ross Castle, an Irish tower house that dates from the late 15th century. It is typical of many fortified dwellings from the period when defence was important - outer walls, portcullis, thick tower walls, narrow windows and arrow loops amongst other such mechanisms. The castle is restored and can be visited. It has artificial lighting at night and looks well.

To find out more about my photography tours and workshops, contact me using the menu above. I have been leading workshops and tours for ten years in Ireland and I have been commissioned by the biggest names in the travel industry including the New York Times, Sunday Times, Easyjet's Traveller magazine, Ritz-Carlton hotels amongst others.

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.

Ross Castle, Killarney at Night

One of the southwest of Ireland's most iconic buildings, Ross Castle is a tower house or fortified dwelling dating from the late 1400s and is typical of the architecture of the period - wealthy and powerful families lived in such defensive structures.

Seen here after sunset as the blue hour approaches, clouds race across the sky and the waters of the river run calm to give a good, but not perfect, reflection with its bright artificial lights.

Blue, blue, electric blue in County Kerry

The late night landscapes of County Kerry last week were the same colour as David Bowie's room - blue, blue, electric blue.

Here, after a long day of photographing the south west of Ireland, the sun had set and light was fading leaving a bright blue to envelop the landscape on the Wild Atlantic Way.

A beautiful and colourful sight I'm sure you will agree.

Panoramic Ireland, that's me of course, create private photography tours and workshops in the west of Ireland and the east too. During blue hour and other times of day.

For more information contact me.
