Theme 3: Forest wildlife and plants. 


'Sunset from the spider’s perspective' The beauty of Ireland captured by a German exchange student living in Co. Monaghan. 


I spotted this unusual perspective on one of my cycles after school when I took a break from my studies. I had reached the top of a Hill and paused to admire the stunning sunset, looking over the field to the forest. You can even see the beautiful cobweb in the picture. I was lost in my thoughts and tried to soak in the light and brightness for the oncoming winter.

Caption: 'Colour explosion' The beauty of Ireland captured by a German exchange student 

Description: I took this picture during a fantastic autumn walk in the Marble Arch Nature Reserve with my host family. I was stunned by the intensity of the colours of this tree which was enthroned over the water falling down.

Theme 4: Enjoying our forests       

Caption: A splash of beauty

Description: My photo was taken in Dartry Forest in Cootehill Co. Cavan when I was out enjoying a well-deserved break from my studies with my sister. Sometimes we just walk in silence and take in the beauty around us - it is our wellbeing break. I am so lucky to have this forest close to my home and I know I can go for a walk anytime.

Theme 4: Enjoying our forests       

Caption: The best side of nature

Description: This wonderful landscape of Dartry Forest in Cootehill Co. Cavan is so relaxing from all the stress of Covid and school. It is a great way to explore the natural beauties of wildlife and plants all around. I love this forest for its scenic walks and runs with the family and has many routes to choose from and I appreciate it more now to have it so close to my home when I want to destress from my exam studies.

Caption:death, that hath suck’d the honey of thy breath, hath had no power yet upon thy beauty”

Description: I am a 3rd year student in Largy College in Clones. I was taking a walk in Bellamont forest in Cootehill near my home and taking a break from my studies. The scenery of the forest had reminded me of a quote from Romeo and Juliet which had inspired the caption. The forest was filled with soft colours that made me feel very relaxed.
