This is Slieve League, Sliabh Liag in Irish. It is located in the Gaeltacht region of Donegal and is one of Ireland's most spectacular scenic walks. The cliffs are 601 metres in height, almost three times higher than the more famous Cliffs of Moher in County Clare. The nearest towns are Kilcar and Teelin.

This vertical POV makes the Slieve League cliffs impressive. Definitely one of the most impressive places in Ireland !

A splendid capture of these impressive cliffs. I like very much the play of light across the crags and the contrast with the shadow area way down below. Lovely rendering of the tones and textures.

A country for real man and woman. What a landscape. The point of view is excellent the light on the rocks very nice. The vertical framing add depth. Very well done.
Have a nice day

Beautiful and scenic..looks wild and perilous.Well presented in the vertical format. The cliffs have a reddish tinge with the light falling on them.
Best wishes for the New Year..

I feel dizzy looking at this:) A very austere piece of the world but beautiful nonetheless. Excellent composition and quality, thanks and best wishes!

Très jolie scène de mer et montagnes bien présentée dans un beau format vertical. J'aime beaucoup l'avant-plan et surtout les deux magnifiques rochers sur le plan d'eau et la partie terre en diagonale.
Tous mes meilleurs voeux,

un bello strapiombo, da vertigini.
La differente luce divide la foto in due parti e due colorazioni ben distinte, messe bene in evidenza dal taglio verticale.

A pov to give vertigo, nice rocks and cliffs, I like too the soft light and colors, tfs.

Ciao Lisa ,
These cliffs are surely more impressive in reality , especially because we have not here a sense of scale . But , from this excellent POV , we can imagine the beauty and the wildness of this specatacular seascape .
ourania (25574) 2012-12-29 7:55
Ciao cara Lisa,
magnifica la vista, la profondita' ed i colori. Il paesaggio e' selvatico ed affascinante protetto dalle proprie caratteristiche che lo rendono inaccessibile. Il punto di vista offre una composizione meravigliosa che e' anche un mosaico di colori e tessiture superbe. La luce calda e la striscia di cielo forniscono un contesto che collega la vista alla realta'. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona domenica,

brianmcc (6005) 2012-12-29 8:33
i've never been here, but any photos that i see of this place show this to be a stunning location. your picture is excellent to show so much of the character of the cliffs. the light on the far side is superb and warms the scene nicely.
happy new year lisa, and best wishes for 2013,

Although Ireland is hilly, I didn't actually expect to see such massive rocks from there. Beautiful viewpoint, very nice warm light. And I like to see some snow there too.
Happy New Year!

Splendida vista su questa costa selvaggia con una luce rugiada e un buon taglio verticale.
Buon capodanno amica mia.

Ciao Lisa,una cartolina dai colori un po' strani dall'Irlanda,siamo abituati a dei verdi molto intensi,invece tu hai dato una svolta catturando l'immagine con una luce molto calda,una vista mozzafiato e dettagli impressionanti.Buon 2013 ricco di salute,viaggi,pace,amore e soldi! Luciano

Worth the climb surely and stunning dose of vertigo! I dont have the kind of energy now Lisa. A rugged coastal scape indeed, this high pov offers the enormous depth and scale of this land formation, the high cliffs and its features with the two rocks add the proportion. The eyecatching blue water looks so inviting, glueing the eye and merged together into a sweeping view in rich earth tones and luminousity are great with nice touches of green in the fg. What a rewarding shot, you certainly get a feel for the vast expanse of this nature wonder. Really enjoyable to behold. Congrats, TFS
All The Very Best In The Coming New Year :))

wonderful captured of this beautiful nature. I don't think I would walk that height, but I wish. Excellently executed. Great management of splendid colors , perfect sharpness, clarity. I like your POV and DoF as well great. Perfectly well done. Thank you.
All the best and I wish you and your love ones Happy New Year 2013,

Très bon point de vue et excellent cadrage vertical de ce superbe endroit sauvage que la douce lumière colore en rose.
mirosu (12290) 2012-12-29 22:59
after spending few relaxing days in your beautiful and well organized city of Sydney I've again an oportunity to see and comment your excellent photo work. I like this view down to the small rocky bay. You have captured it in very nice colors and very good dept of field. The vertical format works well here. I'm already loking forward for your photos of Sydney famous firework. It should be a very special this year. Wish you HNY 2013.
dkmurphys (45873) 2012-12-30 1:06
I like this POV and the result of it. Impressive place, well captured.
Enjoy a happy new year and all the best!
macjake (51436) 2012-12-30 4:02
hmmm...looking at this one it brings to mind right away how much Tosca would enjoy walking around here.
have you noticed the 'look' of the photo?
it kinda reminds me of Gert's old scanned photos he posts from the 60's and 70's. It has that similar, but not same color cast.
Or maybe i'm just going loco!
I do like the views and the natural beauty if offers, sounds like a quiet place away from the touristy areas.
any plans for new years?
I'm going to see if fireworks are planned for the Colored Sails area in Stanley Park! that'll look nice!
Noel_Byrne (20143) 2012-12-30 7:28
Top o the morning to ya Lisa :)
This is a stunning view of these cliffs, the POV excellent, and the variations in colour a beauty, especially the smidgeon of green in the lower right. And these are three times the height of Moher? Wow, I dont like to sound like a sterotype, but holy jaysus, thats high!
I had heard mention before from people who thought it unfair that Moher gets all the attention, and I can see why, this is impressive. Although, to be a true Irish tourist site, you have to have a bumpy potholed car park and visitors centre with which to gouge ridiculous sums of money from tourists, so without that, it probably wont get the recognition it deserves.
You've reminded me of the beauty of these cliffy places (Is cliffy a word??), I really should make more effort to see more of them.
Thanks for sharing a cool shot!
To be sure, to be sure.

J'adore ce pays, il y a une force dans ces paysages qui me fait rêver, comme si j'était loin de tout, j'aime ce que je vois, une très belle présentation que je n'ai pas eu le temps de visiter, je suis rester plus au centre du pays de Dublin, Winslow, au Connemara
Happy New Year dear Lisa
karacabeylis (1465) 2012-12-30 12:35
it absolutely gives the required efficiency. happy new year !
ikeharel (51533) 2012-12-31 4:21
Spactacular nature's scenery, Lisa.
Fascinating is the variable rock's colors, great depth (double meaning here).
Impressive location and no less attractive image from there.
Best wishs for you and your family, Happy New-Year, almost in time in Australia for the fireworks, when written this.
nikkitta (12818) 2012-12-31 7:52
Impressive scene well captured from above with a good POV and a vertical format to show cliffs, vegetation and the blue and deep sea
Soft colors and great contrast
Well done, congrats and TFS
Wish you the best in the incoming 2013
mkamionka (29155) 2013-01-01 1:49
I had the pleasure to visit this beautiful place and have somewhere photos of it but not on TE. You captured it in an interesting light with some pink color tone.
It looks like you were quite at the edge of cliffs to photograph it... Excellent presentation.
Have a happy New Year!
fritzi007 (2441) 2013-01-05 8:43
Hello my dear Lisa,
I love landscapes, and this is one of them!
(when you was in Ireland?)
Bournazel (6341) 2013-01-08 6:10

Wish you lot of travels, and I'm waiting for your Australian pictures
