Zigzag clouds in the morning - altocumulus undulatus above the west of Ireland.


Over the years I have photographed many types of clouds but this is one of the most interesting skies that I have trained my camera on.


Early morning in July on Galway Bay and the diving tower at Salthill saw the formation of this dramatic skyscape but it was not until we got to Lough Corrib with its calm waters reflecting the unusual clouds above that the scene looked so impressive as to make you stop and breathe it all in. A moment never to be repeated, unusual enough that in 20 years of photographing the Irish landscape I have never seen similar before.

A recent photography workshop saw me photographing at one of Dublin's scenic locations, the Samuel Beckett Bridge as it spans the River Liffey

It was a calm evening as sunset approached yet in the distance the singing from Croke Park could be heard all over the city, U2 were playing their one and only concert in Ireland as part of the Joshua Tree tour.

Bog, mountain and sky in Connemara

Connemara or Conamara

The western part of County Galway, situated west of Lough Corrib, is known as Connemara.

It's a land of bog, mountains, sea and sky. This image is taken from a single track bog road on the way to the edge of Ireland, the edge of Europe on the Atlantic Coast.

As I made my way across the bog towards the small lake pictured in this image, I was shadowed by the vertical flight of the skylark hovering in the clouds above me, warbling its distinctive call.
