Irish Landscape Photography : Nigel Borrington

The cove at Stradbally, County Waterford is on of my favourite places to visit along the coast line of souther Ireland, it a deep cove that contains some wonderful little caves that have a long history, Most likely used for smuggling goods in the past.

These days they more used to take shelter from bad weather or just sit in and enjoy for views of the blue sea here , they are a great feature well worth a visit.

  4. Absolutely wonderful Nigel. I did write to you, perhaps you did not receive. I would imagine that your photos are copyrighted but I wondered if I could post on my FB timeline for my friends, mostly family, to see. Our family came from County Tipperary and I was researching The Rock of Cashel and found that beneath it is a Temple to Goddess Danu. My daughter was so thrilled to find this out. None of us have been to Ireland but your pictures stir feelings within us that urge us to do so. Thank you for posting such great images.
