Connemara

Connemara is the wild western coast of Ireland. Sparsely populated, dominated by mountains, forest, bogs and moorland, this is Ireland of the rugged outdoors.

A step away from the rolling green pastures that make Ireland famous, Connemara is home to Ireland's natural vistas. We were excited to take a day trip through the region, but once again the day did not cooperate and we were socked in a heavy downpour for nearly the whole journey.

We didn't take in nearly half of the scenic vistas we expected, but I still really enjoyed photographing the rugged views. The downpour actually added something heavy and almost oppressive, a stark outline to the environment that I think works well.
