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.

When we were visiting the site in 1999, simple signs warned visitors to be cautious because of the “very dangerous cliffs ahead”. The cliffs are really steep, so steep in fact that several people crawled to the edge and lied down to take a look down!

We were quite late that day but still had enough time (and light) for a number of good shots.
