With weather forecasters warning everyone in the country to prepare for a very harsh winter this year, many Irish seems to forget how magical winter could be in Ireland. Michael Dillon, a well-known wedding photographer, took upon it himself to remind everyone how breath-taking an Irish winter can be.
Drawing inspiration from his home county of Galway and its wild Atlantic coastline, Dillon captured stunning photographs of Ireland’s winter landscapes and called the images “escapes.” According to the photographer, he is hoping that the viewers might be able to find an escape through his photographs.
He also explained that when shooting Irish winter landscapes, making the necessary preparations is very important. “The light can be very dramatic in the winter time here, but it comes and goes really fast so you do have to plan out some time,” he explained. But in some instances, you’ve got to be at the right place at the right time to capture the beauty of the Irish winter, Dillon added.
