Enter the prize draw and you could be enjoying this stay in West Cork, overlooking whale-frequented Toehead Bay on the amazing Wild Atlantic Way coastal trail.

If you’re not lucky enough to win this time, you can still take advantage of a West Cork Photography Break in Ireland, staying at The Yellow House. The prize, for a three night all-inclusive* break this autumn, usually costs £460 per person. Terms and conditions apply.

It is a great opportunity if you have ever promised yourself to learn more about photography or dreamed of a chance to see whales and dolphins.

West Cork Photography Breaks, led and hosted by Saffron Walden-based photographer Celia Bartlett, offers short breaks in Ireland which combine both of these wishes.

Sara Willard, a keen photographer from Saffron Walden, travelled to Ireland last week for a West Cork Photography Break, where she joined a photography boat excursion to look for whales, dolphins and seals. This was the first time she had experienced such a trip and was excited to have captured a shot of a group of grey seals resting on the rocks, in quite challenging sea conditions. The photography breaks are led and hosted by Saffron Walden based photographer, Celia Bartlett, and it was she who suggested that Sara should submit her image to the local West Cork newspaper for their Reader's Picture of the Week slot. To her delight, the picture was published in this weeks edition. The successful publication of images offers encouragement and confidence to enthusiastic photographers on the workshops.

Based in a home-from-home setting, the small groups of four guests have an opportunity to learn new photography skills whilst enjoying the stunning scenery, amazing wildlife and great craic.

The highlight of the weekend is a trip out in search of both the majestic humpback whale, as well as the second largest whale in the world – the fin whale – and the beautiful bow-riding dolphins, all during peak cetacean season.
