TENDER ECHOES OF THE WILDERNESS

NORTHERN IRELAND

PHOTOGRAPHY BY PAULA O'HARA




" So come and walk awhile with me and share

the twisting trails and wondrous worlds I've known."

-Shel Silverstein

Conor and I set out with our friends, Paula O'Hara {photographer extraordinaire} and Michael Toman {cinematographer extraordinaire} to discover the beauty and simplicity of nature. I think nature and exploration are the best kinds of inspiration, you can find the prettiest of organic color palettes and textures, along with feeling refreshed and renewed. Paula captured so many heartacheingly beautiful and delicate moments. Michael's {Story of Eve} film was the inspiration behind the name of this shoot, as he captured the sounds and echoes of nature so well in his film that I hope you will take the time to view. The trickling of the creek, the cold water on our skin after we took a dip, the breeze blowing through the tall grasses in the meadow, the warm summer sun flickering overhead, the smooth mossy stones between our toes, the cool wind on our cheeks up in the mountains, and the crackling of the burning embers from the fire. Sometimes it's so nice to head out to good places and slow down, switch off, unplug, unwind, tune out the chaos of everyday life, and lose yourself in the great outdoors. So we hope if you feel that calling to nature, that you'll answer it - that you will seek new adventures, soak in the wild air, and take advantage of this lovely country and its breathtaking scenery.
