A recent photography workshop saw us finish up for sunset at a famous Irish location but on the way we stopped here to capture this rural scene of green fields and sheep-dotted mountain ridges sidelighted by the low summer evening sun.

The Old Fence

An old fence runs into deep waters from the shore.

I stopped here after a photography tour to capture this blue, wave-filled scene and used the fence to add interest into the image.

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.

Daybreak on the Irish Sea Coast of Ireland

Pink sky in the morning, day breaks as the sun nears the horizon once again spilling colour throughout the seascape without a care.

Announcing loudly that today is going to be bright and colourful, the Irish Sea plays its part in the directive - let's make this one to remember.

And it certainly was a sunrise to remember, the colours and warming glow made us stop in awe, of course we were there to photograph such a scene and we were not disappointed.

Planning only takes you so far, then there is adaptation to what nature is giving at any moment.

Come and join me on a morning photography adventure in Ireland; find and photograph scenes like these on one of Panoramic Ireland's photography workshops and tours - for everyone.

After Sunset at the Coast, Ireland

Grass clings to the rocky outcropping just offshore like it has done for countless millennia.

After the sun has set and all have gone home, I have this section of coast to myself with nothing more than the sounds of seabirds settling in for the night and crashing waves across the stony foreshore.

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.

Sunset in Ireland's Midlands

In Ireland it would be easy to assume that the best sunsets are to be found on the west coast with the sun setting over the Atlantic.

The Wild Atlantic Way is certainly a great place for sunsets but the east of the country and Ireland's Midlands can boast bright, saturated, stunning evening skies as seen in this image.

After a three day photography tour on Ireland's Atlantic Coast I was travelling through the centre of the country when the bright sky attracted me off the motorway, as I wrote in a recent post here.

To view more of my sunset images see here.

And of course you can enjoy the real thing, join me on a photography tour or workshop in Ireland.

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.

Sunshine in Freefall, Sunset Ireland

You never know what to expect as an outdoor photographer here in Ireland.

After a three day photography tour in the west of Ireland I was finishing up and heading home through the midlands and close to sunset I spotted a great stormy sky.

Some say it was a giant, Finn McCool or Fionn mac Cumhaill who built the causeway known as the Giant's Causeway. Finn was an Irish giant who, according to one version of the myth, was having a fight with his rival in Scotland called Benandonner.

Finn built the causeway, using rocks as stepping stones across the Irish Sea to Scotland so they could fight but when Finn realised he couldn't fight Benandonner and win, on account of the Scot's size, his wife suggested that Finn hide in the baby's cot. When Benandonner arrived looking for Finn he looked into the baby's cot and upon seeing the size of the baby, returned in haste to Scotland tearing up the causeway as he went.

The story explains why the same basalt columns are found in Scotland, on the island of Staffa particularly in a place known as Fingal's Cave - another name for Finn.

In reality the Giant's Causeway was formed some 50 to 60 million years ago when the chalk rocks of this part of Antrim were overlaid with basalt from massive volcanic activity.
