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.
The shadow from the cairn on Knocknarea stretching over the mountain top towards Ben Bulben on the horizon. Taken at sunset creating some very low lighting and shadows.
The Glen - Sligo
The Glen is on the Coolera Peninsula in Sligo, Ireland. It's on the south face of Knocknarea mountain and is a deep yet narrow canyon running through the limestone bedrock. A forest grows on either side of the top of the cliffs giving a surreal sense of being deep in the earth looking up at the world. This is a wide angle shot of the trail that leads through it.
The sun setting in the west creates some amazing sunsets along the coast of Sligo. This was taken looking out to Sligo bay and across Strandhill. There were some really interesting cloud formations in this image which lasted only a few minutes. The reflection in the water helped connect the background and foreground and the purple and orange colours brought a special mood to the scene.
