Autumn Starting, Cloghleagh Woods Wicklow

It’s that time of year again when the forests change and the possibility of some amazing colours are in the air. It was a pleasure to spend a morning in the Wicklow mountains with RTE reporter Cian McCormack for Morning Ireland. The rain was torrential before dawn as I travelled up towards the Sally Gap. It’s never something I worry about for Autumn colours. In fact, I prefer it when the leaves are wet and saturated.

Pockets of deep yellow are starting to appear and the foliage on the forest floor and strewn across the rocks within the river itself was really stunning. It’s just starting and I can’t wait to get more of this over the coming weeks. For now, here are a few from a wet but equally stunning Cloghleagh.

There was a beautiful abundance of water which made capturing shots like this of the river all the easier.

I loved the light illuminating a wee pocket of fallen foilage. The yellows are coming !
