[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was capture as I climbed to the summit of Slieve League in Co Donegal late in the evening. My reason for the climb was to obtain the best POV of highest cliffs in Europe which was to my right but low laying cloud obscured the true glory of these cliffs. Anyhow, I shall upload that shot maybe tomorrow.

This lake and in particular this outcrop of rocks caught my attention, so I framed my composition and struggled with exposure as I shot into the haze of the sun. Again jpeg compression was quite high with this so quality may suffer.

Hi Stephen

Another splendid view from the Donegal region!
Superb colors, great exposure and a magnificent composition. As simple as that :)

Bravo and TFS

Hi Steve,
I alway appreciate these shots at the coastline very much. Luv the ocean but never seem to get there much :(
I think you've done very well with the conditions you faced. Looking forward to the "highest cliffs in Europe" next time :)
Very well done.

Hi Stephen,
Another very well presented image of Ireland.
Stunning as always my friend.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Hi Steve,
This is excellent. Is it me or is the horizon curved? It looks amazing anyway. Beautifully clear, excellent detail from the rocks in front of the lens to the furthest piece of shoreline. I've heard about these cliffs but never seen them, so I'm looking forward to tomorrow's post!

Hi Stephen,
I can see the cliffs in the far distance. That is really a interesting lake. The water level of it looks really high, and I wouldn't be surprised if it would overflow after a week of Irish weather. I love the composition with the rocks in the FG as great leadlines. The colors look spot on and I like the hazy look of the BG.

Bonjour Stephen!

Bravo et merci.

Hello stephen, another landscape that jusr turn out perfectly, Nice colors, Bg, POv DOF perfet detaila, excllent work, TFS Kyle

Great Irish landscape Stephen.
This shot reminds me of a small lagon on the coast here called Killalea, which I think comes from an Irish family that farmed the area in the 1800s. I have an OK shot which I'll post soon, its quite similar (in a landscape sort of way).

Another singal-womb classic here. Good work shooting into the light, and I think I can see some additional softness in the colors because of it. Great details thoughout the shot. I especially love the mosses on the rock in the fg. On my small 17 inch monitor the jpg artifacts show up mostly on the front edge of the lake at the bright/dark transition (I noticed the same on one of Emma's shots), though they are probably different on your large monitor, and not an issue on the non-compressed version).
