Movement can add to a landscape and travel image, if it is in context and adds to the final image.

During a recent photography workshop we stopped to photograph a woodland scene with thin, straight, tall beech trees growing from a moss-covered wet hummocky floor providing the interest, a path meandering that leads the eye.

Cloudy Sunrise on Dublin Bay

Sunrise on this morning's photography workshop on Dublin's beautiful bay.

The weather forecast was not favourable but was preferable to the following morning's forecast and other recent mornings where rain and heavily overcast conditions create conditions not of interest to the landscape photographer.

A Sunny Day in County Cork

A return to County Cork took me to it's beautifully varied coastline that I have previously mentioned here.

Unlike on that previous occasion the weather was not cloudy and moody but bright and colourful highlighting the bright greens found in the littoral landscape.

There are many factors that contribute to making a good image. Not least among them is lighting, in fact without light we have no image and without good light we have a bad image.

Calm Day in the Mountains of Ireland

No matter how many times you visit a location as a landscape photographer there is always something of interest, something different to photograph.

The subject matter might be the same, the image might be from the same location as your last visit and the weather might be as good as it was before but the scene is not the same and the image will be different.

Busy Spring 2016

Spring 2016 has been busy for Panoramic Ireland's photography tours and workshops in the Irish countryside.

The beautiful weather of recent weeks has brought challenges and opportunities, and the month of May has been better than those of recent years.

Here is a colourful image of a field of buttercups fringed by hawthorns and beech trees under a blue sky with soft, white clouds, taken in a quiet moment between sessions with tripods and filters.

Panoramic Ireland - Sunset at the Lake

The west of Ireland is as blessed as many parts of the world with beautiful sunsets, the sun dropping towards the horizon, its light skimming across a few thousand miles of ocean uninterrupted.

The sun sets over the watery landscape, flooded after a long winter season of heavy rain, the wettest winter on record in Ireland. Grasses slowly regrowing in a matter of hours despite being submerged under the cold lake water and abused by wave after wave for months over the many dark hiemal days.

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.

A Busy Week in Photography

What a week that was!

Friday saw me leaving home to head to a big field in Co. Laois for the biggest and best festival of the year in Ireland, Electric Picnic.

Packing the car with tent, sleeping bag, camera gear, laptop, clothes and everything else needed to keep warm, clean and well nourished I headed
off along with 50,000 others (not all in my car obviously) in the direction of Portlaoise then to Stradbally where, like last year, I parked up in the Red Car Park.

A Morning at the Coast

On a recent morning I went to the coast for sunrise. After a long day previous saw me travelling far and wide through Northern Ireland I rested for a short while before heading out at sunrise. The coast was quiet except for passing rain showers and the gentle movement of the sea slowly retreating.

As a vast expanse of sandy foreshore was revealed numerous birds appeared and began their daily ritual of looking for food in the sand, on the rocks and on the water's edge.

I stood and watched, waiting for the passing showers to fade away. The light constantly changing and safe from the precipitation now falling over the sea, my camera was dry and capturing the scene.

Join me on a photography tour in scenic Ireland and learn to make panoramic images.
