During my second visit to Glendalough I managed to bump into another photographer that I know from the southern side of the border — Reuben Fields!

(If you have never seen his stuff before I strongly recommend you look him up. He puts me to shame…)


If you have seen photographs from Wicklow before, chances are you will have spotted images of this epic mountain bike trail in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains.

However, given that Ballinastoe is home to a whopping 14km trail network, finding this particular section can be difficult… Luckily, Reuben is well versed in the area and after bumping into him at Glendalough he very kindly took the time show me where it was!

The aim here is to capture the light as it shines down the trail. Unfortunately I was a bit late in the year for this but I did still manage to capture the light as it breached the canopy!

While walking back to the car we couldn’t help but notice the gorgeous light that was shining through the desolate tree line.

Luckily for me, a mum and her son just happened to walk past as I was setting up!
