Default Ireland Pictures








Hope you all like! If you could give me some feedback that would be great!

The pics were taken in County Donegal and those are the tallest sea-cliffs in Europe!!!

Thanks,
Steve

Thanks for the feedback Dennis!

Maybe you should visit Northern Ireland. It has a lot more beauty then the south i think and is often overlooked.

My signature is placed where it is on purpose! Im a little bit paranoid about pic theft! Imagine that you took a great pic only to see it winning a competition for someone else!

Although I have a long way to go before I am readly for competitions :lol:

Im quite new to photography!!

Stephen, the furthest north i went was to Sligo & Roscommon. i new people in Armagh but i was told not to visit the north because of all the fighting at the time. just outside of Galway in Salthill (?), a resort area, there was a car bombing. are the cliffs in county Donegal taller than the cliffs of Moor? i think the cliffs of Moor are about 700 to 750 ft. straight down to the water. i have a photo of 2 people sitting over the edge on a windy day. i'm hoping to revisit Ireland in the next couple of years.

dennis

p.s. sorry all you guyz and galz for the off topic.

Yes the Troubles would have been bad in the mid-70's, but it is OK now!!

You will be safe lol!!!

The Cliffs of Moor have somehow become incorrectly known as the tallest by most people!!!

In fact I think the cliffs in my pic are close to, if not more than, 1000ft tall!!! So dont fall over the edge!!!

There is actually a path on the ridge called 'One Man's Pass!!!!' I think that is self-explanatory!!!

Very nice pics, I particularly like your last one. Those cliffs look very ominous.

All the best

Thanks for all the valued feedback everyone!!

I enjoyed taking the pictures so im glad you enjoy looking at them!

My least favourite from a technical point of view is the top one! I have lost all detail in the sky but my dad in the picture helps to give some sense of perspective! Therefore I felt I had to include it!

Regards,

Steve
