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.

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

It’s a great feeling of freedom to load up with gear and just go out to paint with no exact plan…

The colours of the Dingle peninsula can be extraordinary, in this photo, the sun is setting behind the dunes and it’s been raining heavily for a time, as it does.

Heading down Croagh Patrick and the beautiful view of Clew Bay, hope for clearer sky next time.
