In the distance just on the horizon you can see the amazing Skellig Islands seen here 12km from the Ring of Kerry. A wisp of cloud often adorning the peaks of these pinnacles creates a volcanic impression! But there is nothing volcanic about these Skelligs rocks; they are created of the same 350–million-year-old Devonian Sandstone that runs right through the backbone of Kerry - from the county’s south-western headlands to the shores of Killarney's lakes.

What a stunning view! Not sure that I would get that close to the edge, though:-)
The soft light lends the rocks and the sea marvellous tones and I love the velvety effect of the slow shutter speed on the water. Beautifully done!
