North West of Ireland.

The western counties of Ireland, in particular the Wild Atlantic Way, are quite busy during the summer months. The usual bucket list destinations attract crowds that fleet for a moment, capturing instagram friendly snaps, and off again leaving a trail of hash-tags and filters.

Winter though, particularly in the North West, can be quiet… wet, windy and wild too! The roads become silent again. The days are short and the nights long. Light and shadow battle with time. The green, yellow and lilac of summer is replaced by the grey, teal, brown and ochre of winter.

For me it’s the perfect time to wander and discover/rediscover. It can be challenging and rewarding in equal measures. The reward preferably been a creamy pint by a pub fire-side!
