Donegal [Dún na nGall] also known as Tír Chonaill is the largest county in Ulster one of the four provinces of Ireland and also the forth largest county on the island of Ireland. It is the most mountainous county in Ulster with the Derryveagh Mountains to the north and the Blue Stack Mountains in the south, Mount Errigal is the largest peak standing at 749 metres high. County Donegal also has the longest coastline on the Island of Ireland at 1.134km which forms part of the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way which is a 2.500km 1553 mile driving route starting on the Inishowen Peninsula near Malin Head, Irelands most northerly point and ending near Kinsale in County Cork.
For the landscape photographer Donegal is one of the most rugged places to photograph in Ireland especially the north and west coast with its beautiful rivers, lochs, high cliffs, mountains and stunning coastline you can't go wrong. The climate is mostly mild sometimes wet and windy with gale force conditions coming off the Atlantic Ocean. It normally sees a bit of snow in the winter months especially on the higher places. I'v put together this small collection of my images from Donegal, I hope you enjoy them and if you would like to see more feel free to check out my main site at www.johntaggartlandscapes.com Sláinte
