A journey through Ireland with photographer Joel Simpson

Discover Wild, Ancient, Hidden, Gorgeous IRELAND with professional photographer and world-traveler Joel Simpson!

Ireland's landscapes are alternately lush and stark. We see the same scenes today that inspired early 19th Century plein air painters from all over Europe (especially England): the same towns with overgrown riverbanks, the ruins of castles, abbeys and churches, the cows and sheep in the fields, the narrow, winding roads flanked by stone walls and covered with hanging wild flowering plants or bowering trees. This scenic glimpse into Ireland will have you yearning to visit--or revisit--the Emerald Isle!
