this is clougher head on the west coast of the dingle peninsula.
the sun was beginning to set on the horizon over the atlantic ocean creating a wonderfully colourful landscape for a few minutes.

Very beautiful and pleasant-looking place by the sea!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, dof, pov, horizontal format and composition are all excellent!
I love the shapes of the mountains in the bg! I love the texture of the grassy fg! What a sky!
TFS - congrats,

A very accomplished photograph. Great use of the rock in the foreground and the sweep of coastline echoing the sweep of clouds- well seen and framed. The golden highlights on the grass are lovely.

This is a beautiful landscape and you have managed to get the best out of available natural light highlighting the green fields against a magnificent backdrop. Good stuff and loved it.
TFS & WR,

Un paysage bien éclairé sous ce beau ciel et ses nuages en mouvement.

a lovely sunset, a wild landscape, a fine light and nice shades on the sky create an attractive picture.
sacimar (26269) 2012-08-11 3:48
this is a beautiful landscape and a good image, I like the light and tones, the sky is another interesting element here, well done,

This is a beaitiful land/seascape which, I suspect, has really benefitted from your use of both a polarising filter and a ND graduated filter.
The colours are wonderful and the composition excellent, the foreground being held together perfectly by the rough excrescence of rock which lines up perfectly with the two distant headlands. And what a sky! - great streaks of cloud scud across it, illuminated by the low sun in lovely pinks against the deep blue of the clearer sky. Exquisite sharpness and depth of field too.

Another great use of those filters which you claim not to be a master of! Very well composed, great light giving the colours the feel of an oil painting - the sunlight on the grass in the foreground is magical.

A fantastic POV with superb results. I love the way the clouds seem to be in harmony with the textures of the earth and sea. Fantastic natural colours and sharpness with the rock in the right foreground providing a wonderful anchor for the rest of the image which leads into the photo.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely Saturday

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. La lumière est superbe sur la pierre à l'avant plan, fait briller les herbes longues et sur la mer. Le ciel est magnifique.

Great picture of sea coast. Pristine wilderness impresses. Very good composition.
Bartleby (13552) 2012-08-11 6:26
Ah, Dingle is sucha beautiful place. Great use of the wide angle, great light, balanced composition. This shot has it all. Love it!
ourania (46288) 2012-08-11 7:44
it's great to look for or to anticipate a beautiful sunset at a special place and get rewarded with a marvel like this. Your low point of view offers compelling depth and perspective and brings us very close to the superb luminous texture of the grass and the play of light on the rock. I love the degrading luminosity of the sea, the three houses in the distance and the spectacular sky. Lighting, clarity and atmosphere are exquisite. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
Noel_Byrne (31424) 2012-08-11 8:09
Those colours are incredible, as is the light. The sky draws the eye beautifully into the picture too, and off to mountains in the distance. Really excellent image, thanks for sharing.
kabel (1926) 2012-08-11 8:34
Hello, you have managed to capture nice side lighting which provides interesting detail and texture on the rock in the foreground. Good colors and a strong sense of direction from the clouds. This is a very beautiful seascape photo.
dta (78558) 2012-08-11 8:46
Hello Btian ,
A superb coastal landscape . You've chosen here an excellent POV to compose beautifully the picture . Great light games and sky .

HimalAnda (10669) 2012-08-11 10:17
Congratulations for this beautiful picture. The light is perfect, and the sky and its clouds too. I also like the composition with the rock on the foreground.
Very well done!
SnapRJW (31629) 2012-08-11 10:33
Hello Brain - A nice feeling of movement created by the sweep of the clouds and wind-blown grass. The low sun has given lovely highlights and colours to the grass which in turn creates a vibrant contrast to the sky. I love these wild landscapes. Super. Warm regards Rosemary
abmdsudi (54565) 2012-08-11 10:35
Impressive seascape, excellent use of slow shutter and thanks to the ND filter for the details we can see! superb balance of light between the ground and sky area. Really like the pov and composition in equally attractive foreground rendering a superb color contrast as a whole. The tranquil feel is accentuated by wonderful sky. I think the mood is perfectly recorded at perfect location too, thanks to your great work, Gorgeous shot. Congrats

This is a beautiful landscape shot. A strong composition with fantastic light that brings out the best of colours. Good use of the ND filter. Bravo:) Have a nice WE.
Best regards, Erling
bertolucci (13362) 2012-08-12 3:20
Striking dynamics in this beautiful coastscape. I really dig the great light and the set of organic lines and textures - very well composed. But the strongest quality of this shot is its evocativeness - I can feel the wind and taste the salt in the air here.... Superb!
Best regards from Rotterdam,

Lovely, charming landscape, a marvelous place!A very beautiful composition, splendid colours.
siudzi (34141) 2012-08-12 13:04
I love your landscape posts! This one is amazing full of awesome lights and extremely natural tones. I can almost feel the grass in the foreground. Perfectly seen and composed. Very well done.

cette dernière est la plus réussie de cette série sur la nature côtière. J'aime beaucoup ce soleil bas qui dégage bien la couleur des prairies. Un ciel parfaitement dessiné. Les éléments sont intelleligement équilibrés.
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2012-08-13 1:58
great light and landscape. i like the rock in fg and the sky too
korbee (6619) 2012-08-13 12:21
Wonderful light,depth and space here Brian,it looks like everything is moving here,this is like a place to spent for ages.
kwekwekan (1078) 2012-08-13 16:34
Great use of the polarizing filter, especially to bring out the fantastic colours in the evening sky. I also like the softness of the grass and ocean in the mid-ground on the left hand side of the picture - it has a very painterly effect and one can sense the breeze blowing off the sea. Very fine composition as well.
bema (26425) 2012-08-15 12:33
Hi again Brian,

thanks for sharing, see you around, cheers Bernd

I think this is my favourite peninsula in Ireland. Sadly I don't have great photos from there. I always wanted to get back there one more time with better lenses but it has never happened.
Your photo is spectacular with fantastic colors and such a great clarity. Everything seems to be well thought through. The sky makes a great decoration here as well. My favourite are the mountains on the horizon.
Beautiful spot, excellent work,
Cricri (120143) 2012-08-17 4:41
Merveilleux paysage de Irlande, sauvage et de grand espace incroyable qui émerveille, un ciel superbe, dynamique filtrant une magnifique lumière, très jolie
speedymanu (3587) 2012-08-19 2:09
A stunning depth, vibrant colors result in a majestic composition. You've really captured the breathtaking aspect of this panorama.
Thanks for sharing,
chawax (20758) 2012-08-20 6:10
I have great souvenirs of this place, probably the best POV on Slea Head drive ! You had nice weather conditions, good light and a perfect sky. The filters are very useful to keep details in the foreground and make the colours of the grass very beautiful. But I am not a fan of the colours in the sky, they don't look natural to me. Don't know if this is due tp the polarizing or ND grad filter.
JanH (864) 2012-11-12 5:05
I was browsing through your exellent galley.
But I think this one is really outstanding.
Wonderful light and colours: creating a special atmosphere. I almost smell the salt and feel the wind.
