Photographer's Note

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland.

Situated in County Clare and bordering the Burren Area, the Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's most spectacular sights. Standing 700ft above the ground at their highest point and 5 miles long, the Cliffs boast one of the most amazing views in Ireland.

From the cliff's edge, you can hear the booming far below as the waves eat into the soft shale and sandstone. Often, sections of the cliff give way. Visitors should beware because there are no safety precautions or fences.

While there I could not help but notice how seriously dangerous these cliffs could be for the tourist and a quick search on the Internet reveals that several people each year fall to their deaths.
