Wanderlust

Wanderlust - a strong desire to travel and explore the world

Over the past year and a half I have taken quite a number of photos, many of which I adore. In my opinion, however, none of them have invoked as much wanderlust as the ones you're about to see.

It was Friday evening and after looking at the forecast for the weekend ahead I knew that Friday night would be my only chance for a photograph. So I grabbed my gear and headed for Hare's Gap in the Mourne Mountains. 

With landscape photography you can plan as much as you want and read all the weather forecasts in the world, but when it comes down to it no sunrise/sunset is created equal. Sometimes they can be super dramatic, and other times they can be pretty mundane. Luckily for me, Friday night's sunset had bucket loads of drama.

My plan was to get a selfie on the stile at Hare's Gap. After arriving at the wall, however, I found it was pretty windy - which made standing on the stile and posing comfortably almost impossible. I soldiered on though and grabbed a quick photo, but I have a feeling I will be back here again for another selfie. 

The two other photos are from Doan just last week. Myself, Alistair Hamill and Ryan Simpson ventured up for sunset and stumbled upon a rather epic cloud inversion. It was my first time experiencing one and hopefully won't be my last.

To wrap things up, I hope these photos fill you with wanderlust. You don't have to travel around the world for surreal experiences, or even very far within our little country of N.Ireland.

Adventure is just outside your door. All you have to do is seize it.
