Seascapes in “bad” weather

Seascape photography in “bad” weather can sometimes produce dramatic and striking images. Breaking waves, stormy skies and strong winds can create a sense of awe and power that is difficult to capture in fair conditions. So is there really such a thing as “bad” weather when it comes to capturing seascapes? I think it depends on one’s perspective. While some may consider stormy weather to be bad or unpleasant, others may appreciate the raw power and beauty of nature in its most extreme forms.     What I like about “bad” weather is that it adds an extra aspect to a landscape.

Ring of Kerry

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everybody!   When driving along the Ring of Kerry, you can enjoy beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean. Lush green pastures, lined with stone walls, stretch all the way to the shore. For my shot, however, I pointed the camera in the opposite direction with a view of the rolling hinterland. This section of the Ring near Sneem never fails to inspire me. Especially because of the lonely old cottage at the foot of the mountain, which is visibly falling apart.   There have been very few updates here recently, mainly because I have been updating my Wild Atlantic Way ..read more

There were just 20 minutes between these two shots of Owenahincha beach. While the sun set towards the end of the golden hour, the light changed rapidly. The blue hour broke, the light became noticeably cooler and I found myself in a completely different lighting scenario.   Der Beitrag Owenahincha erschien zuerst auf Stefan Schnebelt Photography ..read more

Priest’s Leap

The Priest’s Leap pass is a challenging drive as it is a steep single lane track that leads through the Caha Mountains. Only few people take this road and it is a place of silence. When you made it to the top it is simply rewarding and breathtaking. Here you will find a rock with the simple cross on it that reminds of a local legend: A priest being pursued by english soldiers jumped off with horse and landed some miles away in Bantry. The escape of the priest, incidentally, was successful and the pass had its name: Priets’s Leap.   © Foto: Glengariff School My photo of Priest’s Leap was ..read more

Last spring, I visited several Irish islands with a friend, the journalist Harald Hammel, for a joint project. One of the stories we have brought with us from our Island trip was published in the latest weekend edition of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung with the title “Über Wasser halten” (“Keeping afloat”). In it we take a look at life on Sherkin Island in the southwest of Ireland. You can read the article written by Harald also online here: FAZ – Über Wasser halten   Below I present some photos of Sherkin Island, all taken during our visit last year.   Sean O’Neill Gallery, S ..read more

This is why I named the photograph ..read more

Cape Clear Island

This photo shows the rugged coastline of Cape Clear – the southernmost inhabited island in Ireland. Cape Clear is located in Roaringwater Bay, about 12 km from the mainland.   Especially when crossing to an island, I always realize what a blessing it is to be able to photograph digitally. When photographing wildlife, lighthouses, the ocean, etc. from a boat, it makes a huge difference that you can shoot non-stop and judge the results immediately. If instead you had to change the film after 36 exposures and wait days until you can assess the developed slides, that would limit you a lot. De ..read more

I was planning this shot of Kilkenny for some time. The view of the old houses on the banks of the River Nore and Kilkenny Castle in the background basically determined the ideal viewpoint and with it the best time to take the picture when the sun was illuminating the buildings. Difficult to determine, however, are the moods of the River Nore. It has to be almost windless for the buildings to be reflected in the water of the river. At the time the picture was taken, all these parameters were in place, much to my delight. Der Beitrag Kilkenny erschien zuerst auf Stefan Schnebelt Photography ..read more

This photograph of Doonagore Castle was taken on a beautiful spring evening when the setting sun illuminated the landscape around Doolin in a golden evening light. To save time, I decided to use a fence post on the side of the road instead of my tripod. I was quite surprised by the Irish craftsmanship, because the post stood bolt upright, as the position sensor of my camera told me. So I was able to take photographs of the sunset in the middle of the peaceful landscape of West Clare – without a tripod.
