The boats head back to the mainland from Skellig Michael. Here they are passing Skellig Beag.
I missed yesterday and have not had a chance to catch up on some of your photos. The flu is back and I was down the country at a funeral yesterday. I will catch up at the weekend.

Cool picture - but can you tell me what the white dots are? are they birds?
Nice focus on Skellig Beag and the background is as it should be, get well soon,

Fantastic shot. The lines of the boats are beaking the "horinzontally" of the picture. I like it

this is a great catch! we know this little island with the coast view, and never so close...thx for this.
First i thought that the white was the snow, but wg=hen i saw you took the picture n july...i figured out that it couldn't be snow, so i guess it's bird's shit...lol

Great picture Danny. I like the composition, the wake of the boats enhances it. Also, I like the deep colour of the sea with the Skellig Beag abruptly jutting up out of it. The Skelligs do not look like the "normal" low level grassy islands around Ireland...I wonder how they formed?

Another great one Danny. Are you airborne for this shot? Good saturation, compo and frame.
This area (Valentia, Skelligs) is getting a hammering now on TE !!!
Even still, this is a stand out shot.

Yeah, Danny, the Gannets. I can see them flying around little Skellig. Beautiful view, but what I understnad is that you stayed on Skellig Michael, or did they come back again to pcik you up? I love the mainland in the distance, and I can almost see the cottage where I stayed last year ;-)
