Irish landscape Photography

Rosskerrig, Ahakista is on the Sheepshead peninsular in county West Cork.

Its a wonderful location for an Irish holiday and perfect for landscape images of the coast line alone both sides of the Atlantic bay. It was a very warm but hazy afternoon around Easter time, the light from the sun was oddly very low even though it was still only around 3pm.

For these images I had the camera on a tripod and used a polarising filter.
