Stephen, shot by shot, view by view you are making me want to visit Ireland, and I know I would have the best "voyage route" recomended by an expert.
I love the moody atmosphere captured in this peaceful place.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Steve,
I agree with the first critique, I think the Irish Tourist Board owe you something for your efforts :-) Beautiful light, it looks like the end of the day. Excellent detail throughout, a very calm and tranquil image. Great work.

Hi Stephen,

this is not an exception, it's beautiful.
Well composed, good details and compostion.
Great work, my friend.

Hi Stephen,
Perfect compo. The plus comes from the patches of fresh grass in the dark front part and that touch of warm light on top of the hill.

As always Stephen, A fine Image of Ireland

Good detail, colours and sharpness. exposure and lighting are good. Good POV and composition.

Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

This is another beauty with that 10-22 lens. Lovely soft colors... I'm guessin it was early morning???

Hello Stephen,
I've always loved your Irish landscapes. Now I wonder if the Ireland really is so exceptional or maybe just you're are a great photographer. I guess both! ;-)
Anyway, I definitely musy see Ireland someday.
This is another lovely post from you. Like the way you framed it and I like the light on the top of the mountain a lot. It's a very nice part of this shot.
