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.
The Burren - County Clare
The Burren is a karst landscape in County Clare. Its 250 square kilometres and is surrounded by the villages of Ballyvaughan, Kinvara, Tubber, Corofin, Kilfenora and Lisdoonvarna. The limestone formed as sediments in a tropical sea which covered most of Ireland 350 million years ago. This is a tiny cross section but it's a very beautiful place.
Hazelwood Crannog - Sligo
These are the remains of a crannog in Hazelwood, Sligo. The lake is Lough Gill and roughly 3,000 years ago a thatched wooden hut would have sat on the artificial island with a walkway connecting it to the mainland. It's one of my favorite places as it's much the same now as it was back then.
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.
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.

Old Country Road Leading To Mount Errigal In Donegal, Ireland
View of Mount Errigal in the Derryveagh Mountain Range in Donegal. The backroads are beautiful but very bumpy, better suited to mountain biking but the views are incredible. This old country road created the perfect foreground to frame Mount Errigal and the flash of blue sky that appeared overhead.

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.
