Irish Landscape Photography

One evening on a visit to Killarney, National park, I was just returning from a long walk after watching the Stag’s in the mountains above the lakes and getting some photographs. I then noticed that the Sun-set was just wonderful over the far hills in the west.

I had about 20 shots left on the card I had, so captured a few images from the grounds of the Hotel.

I have shared some of them before but still enjoy looking at them and remembering this wonderful moment, so here is another one that I wanted to share and post.


Yesterday’s Sun and wind, a poem for the January sun.

Yesterday’s Sun and wind

By : Ann Copland

She is the wind swift and pure
so rare to find her like this, still innocent
above a sunny afternoon far into tomorrow.

The wind begins three Counties away
to cool the day, relieve us from the warming sun
Were you not sure she is real?

One day, you may see her, if you look
very close, spheres carry new molecules
Her breath is ice, you’ll feel it early maybe
just a brief gust before the temperatures drop

Yesterdays Sun 2.

Welcome on a January afternoon
by the time we see a branch sway
or a hat tumble, the freezing breath
has warmed to a gentle winter breeze
So much effort, the team who make nature

I’ll let the wind breathe
