Taken from the bottom of Cliffs of Moher, western Ireland. The Atlantic Ocean here gives its best. The place is also a sea-birds colony, and it an be visited with boat tours from Doolin, on the mainland.

bravo pour la qualité de photo, les contraste et la lumière sont magnifiques. Point de vue bien choisi et effet magnique avec le vol des oiseaux.

Swimming here is an invitation to drowning!!
The Ocean, as seen through your eyes, presents a horrible look.
A stunning shot to show the raw power of the Ocean.
Water is playing havoc these days, so be careful.

ben tornato con un scatto molto interessante, bellissima questa atmosfera, scogliere veramente impegnative per una nuotata!

almost a mono shot you have illustrated the drama of the stormy sea very well.
The exposure levels have been well handled and PP work is excellent.

A great atmospheric photo, sharp and misty at the same time. A very stark landscape - all cliffs and waves. The birds add interest too.

A special, almost black and white seaview. I can imgine how stormcan hit between those cliffs, and your viewpoint would not be safe on worse weather.
Interesting to see such clear sediment layers and how seabirds have found resting place on top of them.

A very unsual view on cliffs of Moher ! I didn't know there were boat tours from Doolin to go there and I imagine it must be very impressive to be bottom of such cliffs ! We can feel a great dramatic atmosphere on your picture. Very well done !
Have a nice week end,

The incredible cliffs and surging water have made a dramatic picture. This is a place that I would love to visit. The flying birds help to understand the scale - I like the one with the white waves behind. This is a very atmospheric image indeed.
Kind Regards, Ann

Hello Stephano - This is an excellent shot; moody and wild it conveys both the majesty and power of nature. I love the almost monochromatic colour palette with the merest hints of turquoise and brown. We are off to Ireland next month and will be staying close to the cliffs of Moher, your shot inspires me! warm regards rosemary

At first look in the gallery I was thinking it was a B&W shot. But no, it is a color one. I like what is brouhgt by the very small piece of blue on the moving sea.
A wild place which should not be often photographied from bottom. I would have enjoied to do the same.

Just discover your gallery and your photos, very good ones
This capture is creative for the composition, contrast and light management
And the flying birds give an extra interest, well taken
Thanks for watching and comment my photo

I'm surprised to find that this was shot with a 75mm lens. The compression of perspective looks a lot more than that. The gloomy, doomy atmosphere, and your title are a great combination. A good companion piece to your most recent posting.

Excellent shot...impressive place.. Greetings!!!!!!!!

I have seen this place only from the top, but this is a brilliant picture expressing the enormous size of the cliffs and power of the ocean - it looks almost scary, the boat must have been swinging on waves hard, my admiration to your bravery :-).

A very good shot!I like the composition and atmosphere, with the rocks, the waves and the birds flying. We can almost hear the sea and feel the humidity. Even the colours are great here!
