Griangrafadoir is the Irish word for photographer.
The literal translation is sun light designer.
Isn’t that lovely? How fitting, especially for the Ireland Sunrise photos.
Here is the newest selection of the photos. They’re just a few of the many shared on Twitter & Instagram, and each week I’ll do a post with more. Remember, if YOU have a photo of a sunrise in Ireland, you can join in by sharing it with the hashtag #IrelandSunrise. Who knows, it may end up on one of these Irish sunrise blogposts as well as on social media 🙂
If you’d like a daily dose of the sunrise photos, check out the #IrelandSunrise hashtag streams, or @VibrantIreland where I RT the Twitter photos. Thank you!
BIG thank yous to everyone who is sharing- I get lovely responses from folk saying how your photos are brightening their day! Well done, you sunlight designers 😀
