January Snowy Landscapes

A dramatic dark blue sky looming over a snow covered hillside in North County Cork.

We have had some beautiful snowy days this year. From dramatic clouds to soft sunsets and constant light change from the sun shining to being obscured by clouds. Most of the photographs in this post were in fact taken this year. The rest I captured over the last couple of years.
Living in the Boggeragh Mountains I don't have to go anywhere to enjoy nature. It is at arms reach, right on my doorstep. This is why you see the same places over and over in my photos. But I always try to capture them in new light. A sunset is never the same twice, just like other photographic opportunities. The elements vary and it's always unique in itself, like any moment in time. I am forever in awe of the beauty around me.
