Great perspective. Looking at this photo I feel like I'm walking into the unknown.

Thanks Les. This was my first and only time using a really wide angle
lens. I borrowed my brother's Tamron 10-24mm for a few minutes.

You definitely have an eye for a pix. Hopefully an ultra wide lens is in your future. Again excellent photo.

Lot's of potential photography subjects in Ireland.

BTW, my grandfather came from Ballymena....over 100 years ago.
