Each day's sunset is different, there are no two sunsets the same even in the same location.

Here is a case in point, a few days ago I photographed the sunset here in the west of Ireland. It was a bright evening with some cloud and plenty of blue sky - see image below and this link.

Colourfully Cloudy Sunrise

Sometimes the weather forecast shows for cloudy, boring and rainy weather here in Ireland.

That was true of the morning when I made the effort to head to the coast, one could have been forgiven for abandoning the morning's photoshoot or at least for not expecting much in the way of good images.

Yet here is the reward for patience, the lower clouds undulating across the sky pick up the first rays of the sun while those above slowly change colour.

Seascape Workshop in Connemara, Ireland

I have spent a lot of time in the west of Ireland throughout the years, photographing and travelling through this beautiful Irish region.

This summer of course has been very warm and dry, yet the west of Ireland's landscapes often have more interest in the sky than in other parts of Ireland.

You can now book directly a private one-to-one photography workshop in Ireland's west with Panoramic Ireland, in Connemara which is the western part of County Galway.

Connemara is perfect for learning how to make better images, the landscapes as well as seascapes are big and wide open.

Join Panoramic Ireland on any day of the year, to suit your schedule, and take away a better understanding of light and landscape.

Ireland's Heatwave, Summer 2018

The landscapes of Ireland are renowned for their verdure. In a typical year the summer temperatures rarely exceed 30C and in winter mild temperatures mean little hard ice and snow.

 

This is not a typical year however, a harsh winter with several major snow and ice events and now a long heatwave with little rain since the end of May mean that typically lush scenes look yellow and brown like in this image above.

 

Many trees are now also turning autumnal with green leaves changing to brown, hedgerows with fuchsia and montbretia usually ablaze with reds and oranges too are lacklustre.

 

Most people are saying that it was in 1976 when they last had a summer like this and certainly the summers of late haven't had anything more than a day or two at a time of good weather.

 

It's quite amazing really, not a need to bring a rain jacket and often 16C overnight meaning that the countryside is warm enough to enjoy in the evening without long sleeves.

 

Photographically it is a challenge as many of the days so far have had only bright blue skies without clouds for interest and contrast in the landscape.

 

And of course that famous green has disappeared, for now. I'm sure it will be back when the rain and cooler temperatures return.

 

Panoramic Ireland's photo tours are available in Galway, Dublin, Cork and everywhere else in Ireland, join me and learn how to photograph the beauty of Ireland's landscapes.

Rugged Landscapes, Irish Photography Tours

The rugged mountains of Ireland stand over the flat boglands of waterlogged earth.

Here the peaks, not particularly high, rounded by erosion during the Ice Age stand guard over the Irish landscape as they have for aeons.

Bee in Spring, Rosemary Flowers

Bumblebee Bombus enjoying fresh rosemary flowers Rosmarinus officianalis on a warm spring day in Ireland.

I wrote in my last post yesterday that the long cold winter days are behind us as warm temperatures have finally arrived in mid-April 2018.

The bees, of many types, visited flowers throughout the long, sunny day and I captured some on camera as they went about their busy buzzing.

Stone Circles in the Snow, Ireland

Snow - it's been a snowy winter here in Ireland.

As I've written before, and will no doubt again, it doesn't snow as much as you might think in Ireland but when it does snow it doesn't stick for very long.

The Stream, Flowing Water Over Rocks

The little stream, of no particular renown, continues tumbling down the slope towards the sea as it has done for thousands of years.

Here, in the shaded valley carved over time by the action of water continuously flowing and falling, we find lots of mosses, lichens and bryophytes.
