A Donegal Seascape | The Sun sets over Dunaff Bay in the north west of Donegal as the waves come crashing in against the weather worn outcroppings of rocks.
A Wicklow Landscape | As the sun shines through the trees above and paints the rocks with its dabbled light, the water cascades through small falls at Powerscourt Waterfall in Wicklow.
This image was taken not long after entering the Massy Woods in the Dublin Mountains, just after sun rise. Winter’s naked branches of an ancient oak reach for the sky, surrounded by the green canopy of nearby pine trees
A Wicklow Seascape | The sun has just crested the horizon sending its warm golden light down to Naylor’s Cove in Bray, Co. Wicklow. The 2nd image from my recent visit to this location, this one being just after sunrise.
A Dublin Seascape | The very last image shot in 2012, taken in Whiterock Bay in Dalkey, Dublin. A brief break in the cloud allows the dawn sun to send its golden light down across Whiterock Bay while the sea continues to trash the rocks and beach.
An Antrim Seascape | As day passes to night the last light of a dying sun paints the horizon a golden hue while the moon rises upon the ancient and rugged coastline of Antrim and casts a shaft of light upon the sea.
An Antrim Seascape | As the Sun sets in a cloudless sky upon the North coast of Antrim it sends it’s golden glow upon the rocks of the ancient Giants Causeway.
A Donegal Seascape | “Waves crash upon the rocks of a rugged Donegal coastline in Ireland while the dawn sun sends out its golden glow.” Here’s something a little bit different from me. I plan to experiment this year with a lot more abstract type work. And with that in mind I started to experiment a little over the last few months of 2011.
Well firstly let me start off by wishing you all a very happy New Year. One of the images that made it into my Top 10 for last year was a piece entitled A Line of Crocuses which I originally shared with you in March. I’d like to share an alternate composition of the same subject with you today.
A Donegal Seascape. I had not planned to get up for sunrise this morning as the forecast was pretty bleak. Yea I know why would I ever listen to a weather forecast! I guess though that something in me made me get out of bed just as the sun was about to rise and when I saw the potential I grabbed my bag and ran. I mean that literally. I had no time to spare.
A friend and I decided to take a trip down to Hook Head Lighthouse in Wexford to capture a Sunset and Sunrise combo. We’d packed the tent and sleeping bags and even though the weather didn’t promise much we jumped into the car and took the 2.5hr drive.
Well it appears as if March is the month of the Purple Crocus, atleast according to this blog. This is the 3rd image I have posted and I have in fact published 5 to my portfolio. I mentioned earlier that these flowers, along with Tulips mark the beginning of Spring for me.
