Pictures of Ireland

I’ve been putting together some pictures of Ireland, going through photos in Lightroom. Because I’m always shooting a photo with a view to capturing a reference for a painting, they don’t often work as a finished photo, but some do & I don’t pay enough attention to them.

Intense rain and wind is difficult to work with, rain seems to come from everywhere, but with the camera under a white umbrella, I managed to get this shot.

Photo: Beautiful soft colours of falling rain at Clogher Beach, Dingle Peninsula, West Kerry, Ireland.
Freshly harvested field in Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland.

I took this photo from the passenger seat in a moving car heading south on the M11 en route to Brittas Bay.

Sybil Head (Ceann Sibéal)

There are so many places to paint Sybil Head from, I chose this one because of the two fine horses.

Looking towards Sybil Head (Ceann Sibéal), Dingle, West Kerry, Ireland (click on picture to buy a print fromFineArtAmerica.com).

I intended this to become a full painting, but I really like this version, with the cliffs of Sybil Head in the distance, and the fine horses in the field.
