I have presented this view from Malin Head as a postcard; the sun was shining, the sky was blue and the sea was that lovely turqouise colour that just begs you to go for a dip!

To the right of the shot you can see the little harbour where small fishing boats can unload their catch.

We were told that the first few feet of water are beautifully warm when you step into the sea, but go further than about 10 feet and suddenly the temperature drops! Brrrr! All due to the sea currents.

Thanks for looking.

And it's a beautiful scene worthy of a postcard even though it looks like a cloudy day. I miss the ocean, desert sand is not the same. Good lighting and nice details. But why did you used a wider lens opening? Well done, tfs.

Sun wasn't really ideal for a postcard, but you managed to have the right speed/aperture combination to capture the whole scene

Hi Jean,
It sure is a post card perfect image. Looks so peaceful and calm.
My " guess what" photo was the back hump of a plastic toy dinosaur.

A very pleasing position to take this one Jean, the inlet and the protruding rocks add much. Neat thirds with the horizon, and especially the Irish greens showing through.

Yoo didnt test the waters out yourself then? tehehehehe.
