Ireland's Dingle Peninsula on a Stormy September Day

Sometimes the Irish weather is not pleasant for photography but with patience and local knowledge it is possible to get fine images of the rugged, green Island in the Atlantic.

We went to Dingle in search of bright colourful scenes of mountains and the Atlantic coast like from this occasion a few weeks ago: https://panoramicireland.com/photo-tours-blog/coumeenole-beach-dingle-kerry-slea-head

What we got, however, were the remnants of Hurricane Dorian blowing across Ireland's most westerly peninsula.

I've been exploring the Irish countryside, photographing landscapes, rivers, woodlands and waterfalls a lot recently.

The weather has been mixed with some fine sunny days and some rainy spells, but the Irish countryside looks great in any case.

Photographing woodland streams and waterfalls in Ireland, the Irish countryside is filled with places like these.

During a cloudy afternoon, Panoramic Ireland headed into the mountains and found interesting scenes of sheep grazing in fields, cloudy mountain sides and into the woodlands to photograph streams, colour and waterfalls as seen here that suited the conditions.

Soon after the weather cleared, as it often does, the landscapes of the open countryside became more worthy of the photographer's attention and we headed into the interior of Ireland.

Join Panoramic Ireland on a photography workshop and tour in Ireland, photographing waterfalls, the coast, Dublin's urban scenes and ruins in the countryside.

Street photography can through up some unusual situations and give rise to interesting photographs.

Here, a visiting bishop arrives, Saint Patrick maybe, with his travel case on the cobbled alleys of Dublin and stops to talk with, or perhaps berate, the street vendors with their sandwich boards advertising Thai massages in Dublin.

The blue hour and golden hour that both occur every morning and evening are rightly considered by landscape photographers to be the best times of day to capture scenic landscapes.

Lasting for a short time either side of sunrise and sunset the ephemeral light is soft and colourful, sympathetic to the natural landscapes.

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.

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.

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.
