'Gougane Barra in County Cork is a little-known gem. Beloved of many Irish people, few from outside the country are aware of it. A wonderfully calm morning produced a mirror-like reflection on the lake and a band of mist rising behind the church completes the picture. As I was making this photograph with a student, a local passed by. He paused, watched us for a moment, looked up at the view and exclaimed, "Aren't you lucky men!" How right he was.'
'This view of Doulus Bay from the summit of Geokaun Mountain on Valentia Island, County Kerry is a classic Irish view. Seen here on a blustery morning just as the sun is rising, the autumn colours are just taking root. I find the panoramic format works very well for grand views such as this, doing real justice to the location and the experience of being there. Being willing to get wet while making your photographs ensures that you get interesting skies.'
