Cork is renowned for the spectacular beauty and variety of its landscape – from the ruggedness of the west of the county to the fertile lowlands of the east. In these striking aerial photographs Dennis Horgan shows us Cork city and county from a rarely seen and often unusual perspective. During extensive flights, he turned his lens to patterns not visible at ground level, transforming a ploughed field or a waterfront of containers into a work of art, and captures the explosion of colour as emerald-green headlands meet sapphire seas. So take a tour of Cork’s diverse landscape of coastline and mountain, rivers and lakes, ancient castles and its colourful, vibrant city and towns.
