Beach Races - Ireland
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

Each summer communities all over Ireland host horse racing festivals. Beyond any doubt - my favorite takes place on a wet and sandy beach in the shadows of the mountains of Connemara. Each year for one day only, people gather on a small strand (beach) to watch and bet on first class horses jockeyed by kids. The beach is a large stretch of land that is only dry at the low tide. It stretches between the mainland and a small island named Omey and means that for a few hours each day the island is connected to the mainland and is no longer an island. It is said that the last pagans of Ireland were here until St. Patrick came and converted them in the fifth century, but today it is better known for the spectacle of the beach races.
