Slea Head - Scene from Ryan's Daughter

Slea Head is the most westerly point in Europe and standing there, looking towards America, instills a feeling of excitement and empathy with the millions of emigrants who took this route.

There are splendid views around Slea Head, especially of the Blasket Islands and the scattered rocks, all part of an exploded volcanic area.

This is also the countryside in which the David Lean film, Ryan's Daughter, was mainly made.

Hi! I've been away for a while but am home for the summer. I see you are still posting your wonderful/moody seascapes. It must have been a very still day for the flowers to be so sharp. I really like them in the foreground.

Hi Steve,
I've never made it to this location and probably would have had such a view anyway. The time we were there thick fog blocked most of the views. The slow shutter created a wonderful ghost like effect around all the pinacles. As Evelynn mentioned its amazing to see the flowers without any movement.
