Néifinn i gcéin, Contae Mhaigh Eo

I happened upon this view by happy accident so I didn’t know which mountain it was that I was taking a picture of at the time. Even though the Sheeffry Hills were obscuring any possible view, I managed to convince myself that it was Croagh Patrick, as it was the right shape and the only mountain big enough and close enough.

A pair of German ladies who lived nearby told me that it was Nephin, and when I eventually found it on the map it seemed far too distant. But when I examined the map more closely I could see the evidence before me. Thanks to the relative heights of the mountains beside it and the television mast apparent in the image and marked on the map, I had to conclude that the ladies were right.

So I got out a tape measure, checked the map scale, and was astonished to discover that – as the crow flies – Nephin Mountain was 40 kilometres from where I was stood. I’m still amazed that I was afforded such an uninterrupted view.

Néifinn i gcéin

Ballycurrin Lighthouse, County Mayo

Heavy rains throughout the winter had submerged the twin jetties that run up to and alongside this lighthouse, but I think this actually adds to the image’s strength. I had to perch myself on a rock which sat on what had become a marsh, and bend over at an odd angle in order to operate the camera to get this shot. As you can probably tell by the slate grey sky, it was raining too.

Ballycurrin Lighthouse

Dunguaire Castle, Kinvara, County Galway

Galway’s most famous castle in probably its prettiest village, Kinvara is always a great place to visit. For this image I needed the winning combination of rain clouds, the last light of the day, high tide, and a little bit of good fortune.

Dunguaire Castle

Kiltullagh Castle, County Galway

Motorways are boring so I’m always looking for something interesting alongside the road when driving on one. Just before the junction for Loughrea (if you’re heading away from Galway) through the arch of a bridge I spotted this wreck of a castle.

I liked the shape presented by that fleeting glimpse so I wanted to capture it. On my first visit I found the castle but not the road that would take me there, the second time I shot it from the wrong angle and only on the third visit did I manage to capture the profile that I was after.

Kiltullagh Castle

Eglwys Sant Canna, agos i Henllan Amgoed, Sir Gaerfyrddin, Cymru

This site is marked on the map as St Canna’s Chair. It refers to a stone in the field besides the church on which people used to sit to be cured of certain ailments. They’d throw pins in a nearby well (which is no longer there), drink and sometimes bathe in the water and try to fall asleep on the chair. If they repeated this for a fortnight or more, then the curative effects were stronger. With a story like that I had to go see it for myself.

Any building being slowly reclaimed by nature, such as this, is always a worthy subject to photograph and to explore. The first thing you see from the church’s gateway, as your eyes are led down the long, near-overgrown path, is the church door just visible through the foliage.

The farthest gravestone from the viewer is in memory of Richard Thomas of Penback, Llangan, who died on the 11th of June 1897 and John Harries of the same address who died January 11th 1898. The inscription is in Welsh, and it was the last sentence etched into the gravestone that caught my attention – ‘AM HYNNY, BYDDWCH CHWITHAU YN BAROD‘ – ‘for this, be you also prepared’. Now then, you have been warned.

Eglwys Sant Canna

Pont Gwyrdd Cymru, Sir Penfro

The ‘Green Bridge of Wales’ is probably the most famous landmark of its type in the United Kingdom. The natural arch was created by constant erosion of the carboniferous limestone which forms the coastline. The arch is about 24m high and 20m wide.

Bwa

Dúloch, Contae Mhaigh Eo

I had only just read about the Doolough Tragedy and it was with those poor souls and the inhumanity that caused their suffering that my mind lingered while I stood at a spot that they must have passed.

Dúloch

Goleudy Pencaer, Ynys Meicel, Sir Penfro, Cymru

Strumble Head Lighthouse was erected in 1908 and is amongst the last lighthouses to be built in Britain. It has been fully automated since 1980 and access to the island is for authorised personnel only, however the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path passes right by it so the area enjoys frequent visitors.

Goleudy Pencaer

Ceann Dhún Pádraig, Contae Mhaigh Eo

I like the way that the peninsula looks like just a slither of land from this angle. Visible on the headland is a WWII era look-out post where someone had to stand watch when Ireland was struggling to preserve her neutrality under mounting external pressure.

Derwen Andy, Sir Penfro, Cymru

I spotted this arboreal loner as I drove past a field and recognised it as the tree that photographer Andy Lee had taken a series of images of. ‘Derwen Andy’ translates as Andy’s Oak and is meant as a nod to the artist who’s work I admire.

Caisleán Bhaile na hInse, Conamara

If you take the road towards Roundstone and turn off just before the old railway bridge, after a few twists and turns you’re presented with this spectacular view. I’ve been told that they serve very good food in the castle, but I had to settle for munching on my packed lunch at the side of the lake. Still, not a bad spot to take a bite.

Tuar Mhic Éadaigh, Contae Mhaigh Eo

One of those magical moments when the image just sort of presents itself after a bit of creative struggle. After trying all sorts of compositions I realised that the best vantage point was to be found by standing in the river.

Tuar Mhic Éadaigh

Tŵr Paxton, Cwm Tywi, Sir Gaerfyrddin

I’ve always been captivated by this folly high on a hill above the Towy Valley. I photographed it many times when I was a young man living in Carmarthenshire and I will always visit when I have the chance.

Built in the early 19th Century and named after Sir William Paxton, Paxton’s Tower is a Grade II listed building.

Dún Briste, Ceann Dhún Pádraig, Contae Mhaigh Eo

Dún Briste, which is Irish for Broken Fort, is 45m (150′) tall. Apparently it is widely accepted that the sea stack was formed when an arch that connected it to the mainland collapsed in rough sea conditions in 1393.

Dún Briste

An bóthar go Loch Na Fuaiche, Conamara

A single skeletal tree, growing from under a stone wall, on a lonely mountain pass, before a large body of water, on a fine but cold day in the middle of winter. There’s very little about that combination that I’d be able to resist.

An bóthar go Loch Na Fuaiche

Cathedral Rocks, Acaill, Contae Mhaigh Eo

The view south from Slievemore Court Tomb. A wonderful view in any conditions, on this day I was battered by strong winds.

The Cathedral Rocks are the upsweep of rock at the water’s edge, slightly to the right of centre. I don’t actually know why they’re called that and I’m going to avoid the temptation to make something up (this time).

Cathedral Rocks

Cruach na Cara, Conamara

Situated on an island off the south coast of Connemara is this example of an Early Christian oratory. To get to it you have to find someone with a boat willing to take you out there. I gave this image an old-school film camera look which is very different to my usual style, but it suits the image. The roof was repaired in 1975 and it almost looks as if the image was taken then.
