The story behind the image

The Cliffs of Moher are most certainly a superior attraction at the west coast of Ireland. They are part of an 18 km hiking trail along the coast, providing breathtaking views along the steep cliffs.

We were quite late that day but still had enough time (and light) for a number of good shots. The one above shows the terrific view along the south-western stretch of the cliffs. While this photo is impressive, the enormous hieght becomes only visible when looking the top of the cliffs with the loupe (in the left part of the image.) You may notice little dark spots at the edge. That’s people who take the hike along the cliffs.
