[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As a child I remember my Dad had a book of beauty spots in Ireland and Murlough bay was one scene I vividly remember because it showed the same view in different seasons. I shall visit here again this winter to do just that.

Murlough is a lovely bay situated in a secluded part of the county Antrim Coast. It is reached by a steep, winding road and offers superb views of Fair Head, Rathlin island and on a clear day Scotland.

Murlough Bay is well known for its flora, fauna and geology - a curved limestone cliff protects one of the few remaining old 'natural' temperate woodlands in Ireland.

This at present is my desktop background

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS Windows
Exposure Time: 1/60 sec
F-Stop: f/14.0

I have bought the canon 350 and I got a tamron sp-17-35 f2.8-4di lens with it. I took this lens special for my shots a put on TE. I don't know if you know my work there. But I like your composition a lot and try to learn from you Stephen. This is another very good depth shot, well composing shot, good colours very nice job.

Fantastic shot, Stephen
Excellent composition, perfect exposure,
very nice colour, beautiful view.

This is great. I like the wide-angle view and the amazing sense of depth it creates. Very dramatic shot!

Nice shot Stephen,
And a good choice for desktop BG. Good low POV, well detailed and good colour.
I would like to see this with your grad tobacco filter, I think it would look great.
Thanks for posting

Une superbe prise, les détails et l'exposition sont excellents. J'aime bien la profondeure de cette photo.

Félicitations et merci pour l'envoie !!

Hello Steve,
Amazing landscape shot and if I had anything as pretty as your image I would definately do the same thing (i.e. use it as a wallpaper on my desktop :)


PS seems that you have a real good quality monitor. Makes it easier to work with PS, isn't it?

Cool landscape!
the clouds and the cool light almost make me freeze. But I like the exposure that render the weather condition and I also like the strong perspective of your WA lens. TFS

Sorry, I forgot to score
