An Italian photographer Marco Bottigelli (35) has captured the beauty of the Irish coastline in a stunning series of landscape shots. So, there is no wonder Irish eyes are smiling with landscapes like these! Implausible photographs taken on a 1,200-mile road trip capture the exquisiteness of the Emerald Isle’s coastline, blanketed in wild flowers and dotted with castles and lighthouses, there really is nothing quite like Ireland’s coast.

The photographer captured the country’s unbelievable beauty as he travelled from Dublin to Kerry. He covered more than 1,200 miles; full breadth of the landscape’s changing climate, nature and terrain. From the towering Cliffs of Moher to the hexagonal columns of the Giant’s Causeway, he photographed the lovely coastal scenery of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Moreover, he wanted to create some inspiring collection of this part of world, and for that purpose he drove more than 1,200 miles around the Irish coastline while admiring the scenery and waiting for picture-perfect weather conditions. Ireland has always been one of the most fascinating lands in Europe.

The country is wild and welcoming all at the same time, natural landscapes, picturesque lighthouses and castles. The Ireland landscapes are truly unique and a dreamland for photographers. He said; many times, I’ve to wait for several hours for right lighting, and when it finally comes I get a deeper feeling of joy. However, sometimes, the gloomy skies never clear which can leave a feeling of disappointment. Therefore, it is almost a sense of adrenaline in landscape photography with the ever changing weather. I always try to set my goal to create emotions through my landscape photography and to inspire others to realize our valuable environment. Source: Dailymail
