It has been quite a while since last post, but after moving to a new country and now settling with a new job, it’s time to start wandering length and breadth through the beautiful Ireland, looking for the best photographic spots and collecting as many tips and suggestions as possible to share with you, along with the usual pictures of course!
Let’s start with an image that summarize some of the most distinguishing features of Ireland’s nature: its emerald green land, deep blue sky and wild scenarios.
Location: Derrylea Lough in the Galway County, West Ireland.
What to shoot: The magic of Irish landscapes, changing continuously along with the light, the fast moving clouds, sending fleeting shadows and reflexes on the grass fields and lakes below.
Ideal time to shoot: All day long. The constantly changing sky will provide countless different conditions of light.
Gear: Wide angle lenses to standard zooms.
How to get there: By car. Take the N59 from Galway to Clifden and Connemara National Park. A parking area is easily accessible next to the lake.
