This June, I visited Ireland again and in the late afternoon of the 20th I went to Garrus beach, just a couple of kilometers west of Tramore. Again a wonderful spot of the Copper coast which stretches from Tramore to Dungarvan. This geopark is still undiscovered territory for most of the tourists. After being chased by some bulls, I managed to get on top of the cliffs and witnessed a spectacular view. At first it was cloudy but just before the sun was setting, it peeked through the clouds creating beautiful light over the scene. I definitely will come back in winter time when the sun will rise over the sea (and the bulls are gone).
Hope you like the pictures. Select picture to enlarge !!Read More»
Please find a series of scenes in Waterford in black/white. The pictures where taken last month at the Copper coast, Counshingaun Lough and Woodstown. The series ends with an exception: Hook Head.
This will be the last series of my visit last month to Ireland, hope you enjoyed the series of this beautiful country. Hope there will be a lot more series of Ireland in the future.
One of the finest walks in Waterford is the walk to Coumshingaun Lough. Hidden is the Comeragh mountains, it is one of Europe’s finest examples of a corrie. The scenery is just amazing and breathtaking. The lake is surrounded by cliffs of more than 350 meters high.
After walking along the lake I went up those cliffs to have a good view down to the lake and a great panorama to the south/east.
Hope you like the series.
Completely unexpected, I had to travel to Ireland for my work. It felt if I never left the island, because of my two weeks stay last December.
Obviously I had very limited time to explore the coast with my camera and had only the camera basics with me. Fortunately Owen O’Grady and myself managed to meet for a short look around the Copper coast and finished it off with a delicious Guinness at Hayes’ in Bonmahon. Thanks again Owen, looking forward when we meet in Dungarvan.
This series contains pictures of Tramore, Stradbally, Ardmore, Ballydowane Cove and Granville hotel in Waterford
Hope you will enjoy them.
