Evening in Dublin as the stormy post-sunset light slowly turns to night via storm clouds spreading across the sky over the Irish capital's River Liffey and its modern structures - The Samuel Beckett Bridge, Convention Centre and others.

This is a place that I have photographed often but it never looks the same twice.

To join Panoramic Ireland, that's me, on a photography tour of Dublin and learn how to make panoramic images like this then find out more here.

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.

Perseid Meteors over Ireland 2015

Since at least 36AD when Chinese astronomers first noted the annual light show that is the Perseid meteor shower, people have been watching the spectacular night sky in August each year.

Earth passes through the dust and debris left by the comet Swift-Tuttle as it travels through our solar system on its 133-year orbit around the sun. As the small particles enter Earth's atmosphere they burn up approximately 80km above the surface of our planet. In doing so they create bright, colourful streaks across the sky. If it is night time and if the moon isn't bright like this year then the Perseids are a wonderful sight.
