Hi Stephen,
I think I will never be tired of the way you present these Irish landscapes.
Great capture using the cliffs as frame.

Hi Stephen,

What a great shot - brilliant composition, very effective use of wide angle gives a great feeling of depth, almost gives you vertigo!

Great exposure and DOF and to top it all, great timing to include the gulls!

Really nice work :-)
TFS, Doug

Nice capture, lots of detail and well exposed.

Hi Stephen,
Fantastic landscape!
I didnt notice the birds in the thumbnail so i was presently surprised when i saw them. Great action shot combined with beautiful scenery, the birds really give life to the photo.
As a side note, I am very close to purchasing the 10-22mm lens. Your landscape photos have definitely inspired me and motivated me to try an ultra wide angle lens! Thanks for that :)

Very dramatic scene, I can almost feel the wind, smell the sea and hear the waves! Beautiful composition and very sharp.

Hello Stephen,
Nice to see you back with an magnificent post again.I liked details,sharpness,composition and especially POV a lot.Excellent work!

Hi Stephen,
Great to see you back from vacation. I hope you had a great time. You are showing us another beautiful photo of this impressive and rough coastline. I am slowly understanding my parents why they loved this part of Ireland so much.
I love the clarity in this photo and the great bonus of the two seaguls. Also the clouds in the BG are impressive. As always, great quality with a beautiful POV.

Hi there Stephen! I am very glad to see you post again. I would have been gutted it you had left TN! This is a very beautiful picture of a perfect scenery. Lovely blue sky and an amazing coastline. Well done & TFS!


Another super composition Stephen!. The seagulls are a nice touch. I love the dark, clear water.

I've been missing these images! Thanks for another gorgeous one! As usual, this has a wonderful range of fg to bg details. Those seagulls must have been much closer than they appear here, but they are just right for the scale. It just another way of demonstrating your mastery of that 10mm tube!
