The abundance of stunning scenery and ever-changing light throughout the seasons provided a huge amount of material to carefully edit down into this collection of images, showing the park at it’s best.
This hardback coffee table book contains 168 pages of full colour photographs along with some short essays on the photographers experiences of the project and some thoughts on the National Park itself.
Complimenting the collection of stunning landscape images are sections highlighting some of the built heritage in the park, it’s oldest residents – the Wild Red Deer and a thought provoking section on those that once called some of the wilder parts home and the traces that remain of them now.
PARKLIGHT was awarded 2nd place in the Nature Book Category of the International Photography Awards 2014 and is now currently in it’s third print run.
“I’ve spent thirty five years starting to get to know Killarney National Park. This book is true and beautiful and wonderful and the first ever book of photographs worthy of this place. What Ansel Adams did for Yosemite National Park Norman McCloskey has now done for Killarney National Park.” BQ Killarney
“Killarney National Park is a true gem in the crown of The Kingdom attracting over one million visitors annually. This new book really highlights the beauty and diversity of its 26,000 acres of woodland, lakes and rivers, bog and heath, as well as landscaped parkland and gardens. I must commend Norman on this stunning work.” Minister Jimmy Denihan – Minister for Arts & Heritage
