Snow in Co. Kerry, as seen from Dingle

There can be few places in Ireland as scenic as the Dingle Peninsula, Ireland's and Europe's most westerly point. And of course it sits on the Wild Atlantic Way.

It had been a while since I visited the rugged, mountain-filled land of rocks and beaches and a photography workshop with Patrick from Chicago was the obvious place to head to.

Colour at the Coast

There is nothing quite like an evening at the coast on a calm evening with a colourful sky and still waters reflecting all above.

Autumn in Ireland

Summer has finished in Ireland although a late burst of fine weather in late September is helping to make up for what was a disappointing few months; it was summer only in name.

A Wet End to Summer 2015

Summer in Ireland. It wasn't really tangible in 2015.

Most places in Ireland recorded a wetter, duller and colder summer (June, July and August) than usual.

This evening's image shows the level of water in the lake during a colourful and characterful sunset in the west of Ireland. Rainy at sunset, unlike this last sunset but with the same colours.

Orange and Blue, Calm Sunset

After a busy week I can now appreciate the crepuscles and with a rainy few days the sun finally made a brief appearance below the cloud base just before sunset in the west of Ireland.

The lower sky was illuminated with hues of orange and red while the top remained blue and evening-like both portions reflecting in the calm waters of the lake, windless and magical.

The Landscape Photographer's Cat

White clouds at sunset tinged pink and orange by the last rays of the setting sun in Ireland's West, blue sky behind; this is a landscape photographer's ideal.

I had made the short trek down to this lake in the west of Ireland, with very changeable conditions earlier in the evening there wasn't much to hope for in terms of landscapes but just as I arrived the skies cleared and some colour burst forth.

Photography in Black and White

The late spring and early summer of 2015 has so far been quite wet in the west of Ireland, in fact a recent visit to a lake that I know very well showed that the levels were higher than those at the same time last year; this is despite some parts of Ireland being extremely dry. Dublin had only 17% of its Long Term Average (LTA) rainfall in June 2015. May, however, was very wet with some parts of the west recording over 200% of the LTA and Knock Airport had its dullest May since 1996.

All the recent rain and cloudy skies make for a difficult but always entertaining time for the dedicated outdoors photographer.

Today I revisited a river in the west that I have been to often but not in recent times. And this time I took some photos of the peaceful surroundings of my rest stop.

Wild Atlantic Way Sunset

A busy start to the summer has seen me visit much of the west coast and south of Ireland.

A recent visit to the west coast, to see Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, took me to a high point on Achill Island in County Mayo.

Achill is a place that I have visited often, having holidayed there on numerous occasions and photographed with visitors to the west of Ireland.

After a long day's travelling I made it to my vantage point just before sunset. The sun itself on this occasion being mostly obscured by thick cloud over the ocean.

For me it was the post sunset colour that was of most interest and so patience was required; watching the sun's accelerated dive below the horizon, listening to the wind and wild birds tweeting ahead of darkness it was a relaxing and enjoyable wait before making the final exposure of the evening.

Any part of Ireland's coastline makes a great landscape photography location, Panoramic Ireland create photography experiences from Northern Ireland's Antrim Coast to the urban coastline of Dublin and the west of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way. Contact us for more information.

Coastal Landscape Photography Workshop February

The coast of Ireland is well known and justly so with long, golden sandy beaches, rugged, indented and rocky coastline with castles, cottages and mountains perched precariously looking out over the sea.

From the sheer cliffs of Slieve League in County Donegal to the world famous Cliffs of Moher in County Clare and the Giant's Causeway in County Antrim, there can be no doubt that the coast of Ireland is perfect for photography.
