Mount Errigal is the highest point of the County Donegal and stands 751 metres tall. This mountain is cone shaped and ends in a peak.

County Donegal presents an ever-changing spectacle of landscapes and seascapes set against a backdrop of mountains and moors, with evidence everywhere of traditional Irish culture. Donegal boasts a vast rugged coastline softened regularly by a succession of beautiful beaches with golden sand and clear fresh waters. Inland, Donegal is wild and unspoilt with winding roads leading to never-ending spectacular vistas.

Gran bella foto, mi piace il sole che illumina tra le nuvole, molto suggestiva.


One of the finest landscape compositions I have ever seen on this site, Stephen.
The sombre, overcast look somehow evokes in me a sense of quiet reflection over our soujourn on this diverse yet beautiful earth.
While the sun scorches at this time here in the desert, this peaceful haven in your beautiful land seems to extend a soothing touch.
Superb depth of view and natural look. I feel as if I am standing by your side on the shore of this tranquil lake in Ireland.

Hello Stephen,
Magnificent landscape.POV,large DOF,details and colors are perfect.Well caught,framed and composed.

A remarkable composition. I like the dramatic sky and the moody light. Isn't the image tilted slightly to the right , though ?

Hi Stephen

Nicely framed by the tree. Excellent POV, nice colours, crisp, clear and sharp. Another beautiful landscape. :-)

Hi Stephan,
Excellent composition and framing on this photo. Beautiful subtle colors for this cloudy day. Detail looks great. A great feel of depth to the shot. Well done!

Hello stephen, excllent landscape, excllent detals, Bg, POV perfect colors and framing, TFS Kyle

Super post, I think this is great and the framing really makes it wow. Well done

Hello Stephen!
Very well done landscape. Excellent compsition with the mountain framed between the tree and the wall. Although I am a big fan of sunshine in this case I like the subdued colors of the image. Great depth of field in spite of fairly large aperture. Interestingly enough, the mountain looks much bigger than its height would suggest. Great job, overall!

A very quiet feeling very soft and subtle, partly as a result of the subdued light I think. Overall, a very pleasant composition.
