View Of The Atlantic From Strandhill
4.5 billion years old, 15 million degrees Celsius, speeding around the milky way at 220 kilometers per second and sending billions of neutrinos through your body every minute. Watching the sun sink into the Atlantic off the west coast of Ireland could be a scientific revelation but instead it's just a sensational and jaw dropping view.
Culleenamore is a tidal estuary south of Strandhill's main beach in Sligo. It's an oasis of calm with huge sand dunes sheltering it from the Atlantic winds. Low tide exposes sand banks stretching for miles inland and the bay is a natural oyster bed, there are kitchen middens (mounds of oyster shells) along this stretch of coast dating back to prehistory.

The Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland - Long Exposure
Long exposure landscape photograph of the Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland. Classed as a UNESCO world heritage site it's a stunning place worth a visit and huge draw for tourism in Northern Ireland. This was taken at sunset when everyone had left for the day leaving just me, the camera and a 60 million year old volcanic plateau!

Shipwrecked Eddie's Boat at Magherclogher Beach in Bunbeg, Donegal
Known locally as Eddie's Boat she ran aground on Magherclogher Beach in Bunbeg, Donegal back in the 1970s and has become a tourist attraction since, you can reach it once the tide is out but be fast, it's very shallow and comes back in quickly!

River Running Through Poison Glen At Foot Of Mount Errigal, Donegal, Ireland
Taken in the Poisoned Glen at the foot of Mount Errigal in the Derryveagh Mountains, it’s the exact opposite of what the name implies. In old Irish it was known as Gleann Nemhe (The Heavenly Glen) but when it was translated to English there was a mix up between Neamh which means heavenly, and Neimhe which means poison and it’s become the victim of confusion. If you ever have a chance to visit you’ll realise how appropriate the original name is, a very beautiful place

Panoramic Of Strandhill And Culleenamore Sand Dunes, Sligo
Panoramic of Culleenamore and Strandhill Sand Dunes in Sligo. Recent storms and bad weather have undermined the dunes and they're smaller than they used to be, coastal erosion is taking it's toll but the view from the top is spectacular.
Mist Rolling Over The Ox Mountains in Sligo
The Ox Mountains and surrounding countryside during an early morning winter fog in Sligo, Ireland. The sun was lighting up the low fog and creating this beautiful, mystical look across the landscape bringing out some intense greens and yellows.
This reminded me alot of The Burren in County Clare, strange and weirdly comforting to find it far from home in Scotland. It's roughly 2,700 million years old and was still attached to Europe 12,000 years ago.
A view across from Elgol to Loch Coruisk at the foot of the Black Cuillin on the Isle of Skye. The Scottish Highlands were an incredible place and this is one of my favourite places.
Eas A Rance Waterfall near Ardara in Donegal, Ireland
Eas A Ranca waterfall on the back road to Granny from Ardara in Donegal. This is almost impossible to find but worth the trip if you have the time, after looking at other photographs of this amazing place i realised i found it on a good day, it's normally a raging torrent of water.
Forth Rail Bridge Outside Edinburgh, Scotland
This photo was taken from the New Forth Bridge which is mainly used for cyclists, pedestrians and cars but gives amazing views of the rail bridge. I took this as the sun was starting to set, they just don't make bridges like they used to!
