Great POV and incredible light and colors, Les. I love the aquamarine water, the emerald green on the top of the cliffs, and the burnt orange of the sand as well as the line of the breaking wave on the shore. #998817

Dunmore Head: mainland Irelandís most westerly point offer dramatic view of the Blasket islands.
Iím not 100% sure, but I think this is one of the beaches seen in the 1970ís movie; Ryanís Daughter.

To get this shot I had to climb stone walls, cross barbed wire fences,
and tromp around in deep wet grass to place my tripod on an overhanging cliff.
