the dingle peninsula in county kerry provides views like this around every corner. this is the slea head road travelling west from dingle, looking towards slea head and coumeenoole beach.
the wind was blowing in from the atlantic ocean with such strength that i had to use a tripod here just to stabilise my camera. and with the clouds moving across the sky so quickly the light seemed to change dramatically every few minutes.

Seems we have both used strong leading lines today and my shot also has the yellow road markings at the edge! Great minds think alike eh? Lovely colour saturation and balance too with a hint of the clouds shade on the aqua blue of the water. Nice curve that brings the outcrop out on the horizon line making this a well thought about composition.
A beautiful place - makes me want to go there!

Hello Brian, lovely image here. Ireland has some fantastic landscapes and i can see that from your photo too. Great great POV, the colors look a bit oversaturated but the overall composition is fantastic.

Makes you want to take a drive.

hello Brian ,
The eye is attracted in two directions : by the road on the right , by the emerald sea and the penisula on the left . I like the mood and the sky , too .

What a lovely road and what a great POV to illustrate it. Fresh natural colors are just to fit my taste. Great catch!

Hi dear Brian
This is another wonderful image. Your choosed panfocus appraoch is very preferable and comfortable, and best match with this situation. Delight color touch is very nice. Clear and sharp image as usual. Thanks for your sharing and have a good Sunday!

Hey isn't this where Fungi the Dolphin lives? Jeez he must be about 450 years old by now. What a beautiful place to live. I like how you've used the coastline so well to guide the eye around the frame. The colours are magnificent, as is the depth of field. Everything looks so unspoiled and untouched. I remember riding a bicycle around this place many years ago, with a slight mishap after stopping just a little too long in one of those drinking dens of iniquity. Lovely shot, and it brings back some happy memories too :)

Hard to believe - a full daylight photograph!
Great depth giben by the winding road which you have cut excellently. The greens and blues correspond very nicely with the clouded sky. Well seen & done. TFS

very original presentation of the famous headland.
I like the road in the foreground which extends further and disappears behind the turn.
The colors are amazing with 40 shades of green probably all represented here.

The Z-form and the road creates a very nice
depth in the picture (great point of view
and composition). Light management is also
great. The beautiful sky is a nice extra,
like a cherry on a delicious cake.

Very nice landscape captured with perfect pov and good geometry.
Nice soft colors and a scenery full of serenity.
TFS and best regards

this is an excellentlandscape shot with amazingsoft colors and beautiful composition, great POV and sharpness, congratulations.
macjake (62364) 2012-10-08 15:46
this is certainly one of those wow photos.
When I do eventually visit this country, THIS will be on my to-do-list. Rent a car and travel around these cliff edges.
what dramatic views!
seeing the road on the right really puts it over the top, as we can imagine ourselves riding along. I can almost feel the cold breeze and wind too.
Royaldevon (33935) 2012-10-09 1:33
Good Morning Brian,
The ruffled waves give a sense of the wind that you describe in your notes.
You provide us with a fine lead along the water's edge but one that is secure, with its large, textured stone. The road has a strong disappearing point where it has served its purpose, to guide to the Kerry hills.
Have a lovely day,
We once stayed in cottages on the Donnegal coast, in April, and can testify to the power of the wind off the Atlantic. But, it is very exhilarating!

The colours here are so vibrant and uniquely Irish. This is a really fantastic shot, and I love the different tones in the water. Beautiful composition with the road leading in and the rolling hills tool. That road looks to be in remarkably good condition for Ireland!
All the best

Great Coastal shot, the greens and blues are very attractive, what a beautiful place and the inclusion of the road gives great balance and purpose to the shot, reminds me very much of our own "Great Ocean Road" along the south west coast of Victoria, Australia. TFS Cheers Peter
