A Fine Day in Belfast

Belfast's River Lagan cuts a snaking path through the edge of the city, the true city centre situated a little to the west over the now covered Farset river from which Belfast gets its name.

Béal Feirste is the Irish name for the second largest city on the island of Ireland, meaning Mouth of the (River) Farset.

Not the Famous Location but Still Scenic

I do enjoy visiting the famous places in Ireland, there's Kilkenny, Dingle, Dublin and the Giant's Causeway to name a few.

But I also enjoy leading photography workshops in the non-famous places here in Ireland - those places that make up the bulk of the Irish countryside such as here in the above image of a typical woodland scene in spring.

For over 10 years now Panoramic Ireland's famous Dublin Photo Tours have been taking locals and visitors alike around Dublin's famous and not so famous sights.

Yesterday was no exception with RM in from Austin, Texas. We headed off in the afternoon to explore some of the city's interesting places.

The weather was fine, and it was my first full tour after having had chemotherapy for cancer last week so I wasn't sure what to expect from my own ability.

Storm waves break on the basalt columns of Northern Ireland's famous Giant's Causeway.

From a recent photography workshop to one of the planet's finest stretches of coastline - the Antrim Coast.

On this workshop, L.L. from California, wanted to visit the famous rock formations believed in legend to have been created by a famous Irish giant named Finn McCool or Fionn Mac Cumhaill.

Using Filters - Polarisers in Photography

Polarising filters, also known as polarisers or circular polarisers are essential filters in any photographer's kit.

Usually in the form of a screw-in filter, polarisers block out some polarised light allowing only light travelling in one direction to pass through the filter to reach the sensor.

Simply, we use polarisers for one reason - to reduce glare or reflected light from objects or subjects.

Street Photography Evening in Dublin

Dublin is a fine city of wide avenues and cobbled streets lined with pubs.

Famed for its nightlife the world over, Dublin has more pubs than any other county or city in Ireland.

With approximately 750 pubs, that figure was a lot more in the past, Dublin's pubs are often cited by tourists and visitors to the city as one of the key reasons to visit Ireland.

Here, people enjoying an evening out in Temple Bar stand outside the most photographed pub in Ireland, The Temple Bar.

Cobbles - Street Photography in Dublin

Street photography is an interesting pursuit, often requiring more patience than landscape photography.

Street photography often suits inclement weather, but more often than not it suits bright, sunshiny, direct light.

Softness in the Irish Landscape

The softness of the Irish landscape is here complemented by the softness of the Irish weather.

A chilly start to the day before the sun warmed the green and grey of the west of Ireland, clouds gently lifted from the lake towards the weathered mountain tops.

And then, on we go capturing scenes from this scenic part of the world.

Join me to photograph the west of Ireland, all year round.

Northern Ireland's most photographed road, the Dark Hedges on Bregagh Road known to many Game of Thrones fans around the world as the King's Road needs little introduction.

It is a scenic, leafy avenue of beech trees close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site The Giant's Causeway.

It is also a place that I enjoy photographing in, even with the challenges of overtourism that have blighted this leafily scenic route to the coast.

As the Sun Sets - Sunset in Ireland

Sunsets are a strange thing, amazing to watch and enjoy yet many feel that they are not worthy of a place in landscape photography.

It's an interesting idea, the concept of not photographing one of the most spectacular, and common, natural events that you can witness.

Never the same twice, the sunset can give us plenty to think about as photographers of landscapes, as artists and as travellers in a foreign land and opportunities to work on photographic and artistic skills.
