The Wreck

Wicklow Mountains National Park
Wicklow Mountains National Park

From the serenity of the peaceful lake of Glendalough, to the inquietude of this picture I took a couple of weeks ago, during one of my scouting for new photographic spots in Ireland, when I bumped into this wreck sinisterly abandoned on the roadside.

Location: Wicklow Mountains National Park, County Wicklow, Ireland.

What to shoot: Two routes cross this beautifully spectral national park. You will be surrounded by an amazingly barren nature, small streams, solitary trees, but also a few spectacular lakes.

Ideal time to shoot: All day long.

Gear: Wide angle lenses to standard zooms.

How to get there: By car. Half an hour south from Dublin on the R115 and R759.

Coordinates: 53°09′15″N 6°20′32″W

  1. I love the way the water and the car merge into that silvery-grey, and the rust echoes the colours of the land and the sky. A portrait in limited colours. If you keep going like this, I’ll have to visit Ireland as well as Venice!
