Photographer's Note

Inis Mór is the largest of the three Aran Islands, covering approximately sixteen square miles. The population (900) used to fish for a living, but now tourism has become a main source of income, and old fishermen drive tourists around in horse carriages or mini-buses. They speak Irish and have a culture rich in traditions.
Reliable electricity and communications arrived very recently to the islands (TV is available since 1980), but are shaping its landscapes faster than ever. In the photo, the ruins of an old church are surrounded by wires and a communications antenna (surely useful, but hardly appropriate). The new conditions, the development, are changing not only the landscape but also the life of islanders, with a mixture of good and bad things.
A photo of the impressive Inis Mór cliffs here .
The photo was taken from a moving carriage (jumping all the time!). PP consisted of untilting, B&W conversion and light adjustments. The only thing that bothers me is the little house on the right, that I didn't want to clone out.
I hope you like it! Cheers!
