The Fantastic Winter Colours of Connemara

Usually people BELIEVE that in winter nature has no colour, that there is only grey, brown and nameless mixtures in between. 

So I am on a mission to PROVE everyone who believes that WRONG. 

Have a look at the fantastic winter colours of Connemara. The gorgeous rusty and golden hues mixing together to oblivion.  Enjoy

Foggy day in the Bogs

As I was wondering what to share with you I came up with those foggy images from the Bogs in Oughterard, a bit of nature and landscape photography from a few years ago which I haven't shared yet. 


I have to say that walking the bogs is a fascinating experience for me, I find them beautiful, exciting and fascinating, especially in summer, and most of the time extremely wet!! So don not venture in there without some wellies and certainly don't decide to cross bog lands on your own thinking you can do it as a short cut!! It is most likely impossible!!!

Believe me, I have tried. The things I have done with my camera!!!!

Anyway here we are in the bog lands around Oughterard, someone most likely will recognize the place, and well done to you, for the rest of you -- enjoy!!

Golden sunrise in the snow, Connemara Landscape Photography

I was looking through my "store-cupboard" and came up with some snowy images 

which I haven't published anywhere before. One rare snowy morning with golden light and beautiful frozen Connemara landscapes.

Since the weather is just starting to ease up on everyone here in the West of Ireland, 
I think we all need to feast our eyes on something peaceful, quiet and relaxing after all the crazy winds, freak waves and extra high tides.

Here you go, have a cuppa, and enjoy the lack of wind, and rain (hopefully)
