From the rainy season in Namibia to the verdant all-year-round rains of Ireland today. This shot was taken on the well-beaten tourist route, the Ring of Kerry. Looking out from the Coomakista Pass, the silver sands of Derrynane Beach can be seen on the left hand side of the shot and the Deenish and Scariff Islands on the right.

I will visit here this year, and it will be thanks to you! What a beautiful landscape. As you say, the difference between Namibia and Ireland is amazing, and I guess that is what gives each place its unique colors and appearance. When I see these clouds, promising that rain is never far away it reminds me of why this country is so green. That which doesn't have grass growing on it is instead covered in moss.
Superb light, really a beautiful shot.
All the best

penso che questo sia un bellissimo paesaggio, ma solo vedendolo dal vivo si può apprezzare in modo assoluto tutto il suo splendore.
La foto è molto bella e ben realizzata, la qualità è eccellente e, proprio per questo, si riesce a percepire la magia del momento.

I love this scene you have captured in Kerry, in particular the light how it has fallen on certain areas of this beautiful landscape. My eyes go's immediately to three highlighted areas, the Fg, rocks the beach and the left horizon of the sea.
Wonderful, love it.

Hi Rosemary, How great that we can jump all over the world, from one place to the other. Marvelous shot of this unspoiled, wild landscape. splendid view of the see with islands, marvelous stones and short grasses. What a joy must be to hike there.

un paesaggio grandioso e cupo quali appaiono le distese irlandesi in una giornata priva di sole.
Ottima la composizione e giusta la scelta del contrasto .
Ciao e buona settimana

a shot that typifies the simple beauty of Ireland. Who could resist a view and a beach like this. A serene atmosphere and shot full of captivating light and a hint of Tolkien about it. Looks amazing!
Have a good week - B.

A fine landscape composition. I like that dramatic sky and the low light, which together create a particular atmosphere. Depth is excellent.

Tu devais te sentir bien seule lors de cette prise.Tu semble face a un paysage rude avec une température incertaine. Le cadrage est excellent et l'ensemble d'une très belle netteté.

this is exactly what I, and maybe most of us who have never been to Ireland THINK of Ireland.
I don't know what it is, but I can just walk around for miles and miles feeling the wind in my face and taking in all the scenery.
your photo brings all of that to the viewers.
love seeing the subjects way into the far reaches of the bg.
