I think Il post some more landscapes this week if your not tiring of them. Its been Oct since I last photographed anything and I really need to get out and trek down some wildlife but its still so cold in Ireland.

This shot is of Lough Leane in Killarney,s National Park Co. Kerry. I remember well the night I took this all was so peaceful and the silence was just wonderful. I waited here for around 30mins until the light was just right.

Tomorrow I shall post another shot of the Killarney lakes this time taken from the mountain just left of center.

What a nice looking lake... Good colors and atmosphere... And your frame is just perfect for this foto...

Beautiful landscape, Stephen! No, I'm not tired at all of your landscapes photos. Great rendering of the shadows and highlights, as well as the soft colors. Composition if excellent too. Great work (but can one call this "work" anyway?). Thanks for sharing.

I'm definitely not tiring of them, the more the better at this quality. The shots that you have posted lately are great the tourist board would be mad not to use them - I think you should pursue that angle.

This one is super, I love the sillouhetted mountains and the light on the water is magic, well done Stephen.

Great landscape, beautiful soft colours.
Well done.

Pretty colours and pretty scenery, it's a lovely shot.

You have some beautiful landscapes Stephen. Lovely Ireland, a picture postcard around every corner. This one is great, the colours of the sky and water and the trees and hills. One nit, I think the angle is slightly tilted to the left. But I do like it. Well done.

Great quality shot Stephen. You have a wonderful talent for these landscapes. Good work once again.

Très belle composition photographique ! J'aime beaucoup le contraste entre les reliefs sombres et le rose pâle.
Very good shot !

Wonderful colors with that very special late evening light. It looks as though the horizon is skewed, but I bet it's just the curve of the island. Thanks for sharing this lovely place.


P.S. Your thumbnail on the intro page is hilarious! Is that your mom?

Smply the BEST!
