The 15th century stronghold, built by the O'Donoghue Ross clan, and one of the last to capitulate to Cromwellian armies, sits on the shores of Lough Leane in Killarney, Co. Kerry.
Taken from the jagged lip of this fascinating geological formation. If you’re ever on the Beara Peninsula it’s well worth checking out, especially at low tide.
Long exposure of a lone tree surrounded by Lough Leane's water. The three crows perched on one of its branches stood there pruning themselves, making their heads and tails appear ghost-like, contributing to the ethereal tone of the image. Added to that is the significance of the crow in Irish mythology: the bird was said to be a manifestation of the phantom Queen know as the Morrigan, who was seen as a harbinger of war and death.
As I searched for more and more compositions on this stunning morning on the shores of The Upper Lake in Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry, I stumbled upon this tiny bush of gorse bursting out from the heather below it. The luminous yellow flowers demand to be the focal point but there are so many wonderful elements that come together here; not least the lilac and purple flowers of the heather paying homage to the brilliant gorse and the dew-laced spider-web spread beneath it like a brides train. In the distance, the golden sunlight bathes Eagles Nest mountain in a warm glow while the last of the morning fog is burned away from the lake.

As I stood on the shores of Fenit in Tralee Bay, I watched as this unusual cloud formation gathered over the Slieve Mish mountains. There was nothing left to do except press the shutter. Mother Nature did all the work here. The formation instantly reminded me of an unsettled pint of Guinness.
As I walked along the Old Kenmare Road in Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry on this stunning morning, I came across this lone hawthorn tree growing out from an old dry-stone wall. You can just make out some berries still on the branches but also you will notice a faint lime green coming from the abundance of lichen growing on it. The very soft light and haze of the cold morning created this wonderful subtle tone with the browns of the wintery uplands and the white of the snow.
The view from the top of Ballaghisheen Pass in County Kerry. Roughly translated, it means "The Way of Oisín". Oisín (pronounced oh-SHEEN) is a mythical figure in Irish folklore. The son of the great warrior Fionn mac Cumhill and a warrior of the Fianna himself, he was also regarded, in ledgend, as the greatest Irish poet.
After a long hike through The Burren with friends, I stumbled across this boulder overlooking Fanore beach. The setting sun had sculpted the shadows perfectly to bring out the otherworldly masculine features of this limestone erratic, and the clouds above seemed to be mimicking the texture of the karst landscape below. He seemed to be staring out across the Atlantic, resolute and ready for the next day. It has become one of my favorite images.
