Mount Errigal is the highest point of the County Donegal and stands 751 metres tall. This mountain is cone shaped and ends in a peak.

County Donegal presents an ever-changing spectacle of landscapes and seascapes set against a backdrop of mountains and moors, with evidence everywhere of traditional Irish culture. Donegal boasts a vast rugged coastline softened regularly by a succession of beautiful beaches with golden sand and clear fresh waters. Inland, Donegal is wild and unspoilt with winding roads leading to never-ending spectacular vistas.

Hi Stephen,
Excellent landscape shot. Lovely place to be in, such serenity and calmness. Very interesting elements in the foreground. The cloud covered skyline and the conical mountain with its reflection presents so much depth. Very nicely composed and framed. Kudos.

Hi Stephen,
Stunning scenery, and well portrayed by you. Great photo, colours, reflections and contrasts between the water and the sky, and the sourounding land. Well done. . .

Hi Stephen, nice landscape you captured, good DOF and dramatic sky, well done.

Hello Stephen,
Superb, gloomy landscape. Very nice perspective with mighty looking sky :-)
Best greetings,

Magnifique paysage qui ressort bien avec le grand angle.
Bonne journée.

Hi Stephen

from the thumbnail alone it was clearly one of your pictures. It just has that wonderful Irish feel to it. I really like the darker clouds at the top, (I'm guessing the filter but I don't know the Cokin numbers...) adn the flash of blue sky in the center really adds to the atmosphere.

Great foreground as always!


Hi Stephen ,
wonderful shot with lovely composition.
vivid colours and excellent sharpness.
great work
thanks for sharing

Hi Stephen, a beautiful landscape shot you've presented here. There's so many intersting things to catch my eye in the shot. Simply love all the elements in the forground. The sky is very dramatic, and a nice reflection in the water. Very well seen and taken photo Stephen. TFS Lyndon

Hi Stephen,
Beautiful image through wide angle and POV.
Well done

Hello Stephen,
Wow, I feel like I could step right into this photo, it has such amazing depth, What an great spot you picked to photograph this mountain, I like the reeds, the waters edge and old posts remaining from somes dock from the past. Beautiful (As Always! ) TFS

Hello Stephen,
I love this landscape! Fantastic!
Excellent POV, framing and exposure. Wonderful colours, excellent sharpness and details. This is an excellen composition. Thank you.

I'm wondering if you ever got your new camera. Didn't you sell your Rebel? What are you planning on getting? This is another of your effective composition with that wide angle lens. There is sharp foreground interest. I like the nice sheen on the water.

Another great shot of your beautiful part of the world, Stephen. Great POV and perspective with the mountain in the distance. Wonderful sharpness and colour.

Hi Steve,
The sky in this photo is really wonderful. It makes for a wonderful moody atmosphere. It also gives the photo the nice soft light which helps to bring out the colors better. The remains of the pier in the FG acts like a great leadline and also makes one wonder why nothing has been done to it to keep it in shape. It is wonderful to see how the mountains standout from its surrounding area and how it touches the clouds.

Hi Stephen

This sure has the 'wow' factor to it. Stunning shot. Love the bits 'n pieces in the foreground and those magnificent clouds. Another wonderful image from you. Thank you MF! :-)
