This is the view from "Torr Head" looking north up the coastline and is one of my favorite locations in Northern Ireland.
The tides that run below are some of the most treacherous in the northern isles, creating as they do, whirlpools and strong currents; twice a day the Irish Sea ebbs and flows sending billions of gallons of water between Ireland and Scotland.
This is the closest point from Ireland to Scotland and if you climb the steep road leading up to this view point you will be rewarded with some spectacular views over to the Mull of Kintyre on a clear day.

I like the way you have captured the sun over the cliff. Good colors and point of view as well. I really would like to visit Northern Ireland. The land seems very hight on the left part ! I guess you have a great sight from the top.

I love the landscapes of Ireland ! very good colors on that shot, espcecially the green ( and white spots, I assume they're sheep) and the ray of light on top of the green cliff. nice compo.

Plus que jamais méritant sur nom d'ile verte. Une composition bien éclairée avec d'intenses couleurs et toute une atmosphère pastorale.
Peut-être un tout pett manque de mise-au-point.

A very, very fine shot, Stephen. The richness of the green grass is vividly portrayed without oversaturation. The POV is excellent, and the lighting gives the scene much ambience. A very satisfying portrayal. Regards.

I think it woulb be the paradise for cows, sheeps and goats ;op. I love this fields of grass and this mass of green colors.

Beautiful picture, sooo typical Irish. The colors are very lively. I must admit that the frame pleases me less, but that doesn'tchange the beauty of the shot.

Hi Stephen - theshades of green are unbelieveable here, and the stone fences make interesting geometry, best of all that single ray of sunlight.... fantastic!
jbweasle (9373) 2005-06-12 11:52
Great colours and excellent lighting, Stephen. I like the way the stone wall adds interest to the foreground and frames the lower part of the picture. It looks like a beautiful place to go hiking.
