Windswept Cliff

Windswept Cliff

Rough grass clings to the headland near Mizen Head in West Cork as waves crash on the cliffs far below. On the day I took this it was a lovely warm, sunny day, but I Love the effect black and white has on this scene. It sends a chill through me looking at it, especially the original full size image.

Looking forward to the Doneraile photowalk tomorrow. I hope this nice sunny weather holds. The sun isn’t overbearing, and the sky is interesting with wispy clouds. As I said before, if you’re not sure you’ll make it for 3pm, get in touch and I’ll email you my phone number. My wife and I are bringing a small picnic, sandwiches and a flask for tea so bring some food if you think you’ll be peckish!

    Well I’m not going to make it to the Photomeet tomorrow – hope y’all have a great day. I’ll see how good when the photos all get uploaded ;-)
    Cork is most definitely on my list to visit, have not been there in years and have fond memories of the place.

    This reminds me of the windswept coast of North east tasmania – quite desolate freezing- real experienceof raw nature
