Dunmore Head: mainland Ireland’s most westerly point offer dramatic view of the Blasket islands.

I’m not 100% sure, but I think this is one of the beaches seen in the 1970’s movie; Ryan’s 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.

    Very well composed shot. Might be a little over saturated but it works. I like a lot of saturation myself.
