Connemara is one of the most scenic regions in Ireland. It's craggy mountain peaks, expansive sandy beaches and laced network of lakes exemplify the peaceful solitude and rugged beauty of The West of Ireland.
Connemara's unique landscape, varying settlement patterns, and dramatic contrasts of sea, sky, land and bog, have inspired many famous paintings and literary figures over the years.

Hi Piotr,

A bit minimalistic. I'm hoping to see something more exciting here, but at the same time it's very tranquille and that's worth something as well.
Maybe I would have turned a slight bit more to the left, not to cut off the house at the left. But I like it as it is as well. Has to grow on me a bit.

Greetings, Dennis

Hi Piotr

I like the warm vs cold colour contrast, between the red tinted sand, & the blue / grey sky. Good sharpness with the seaweed adding interest. Tfs!

Hello Piotr. Stunning image in excellent fg sharpness and detail. I like the exposure against the the grey cloudy sky. Nicely composed and well done. Regards. Jusni

Hello Piotr! A very nicely composed landscape shot, the light is awesome and the sky is just fantastic, well done my friend!


Hi Piotr,
Wonderful brooding landscape with the golden green sea weed of the foreground contrasting brilliantly with the gathering storm clouds of the North Atlantic coast.
Beautiful inclusion of the home in the distant left corner.
Regards, Tom

Hi Piotr,
It is a scenic view. Wild it may be but I bet more people would like this than a crowded beach. Great focus on the f/g, tech details are superb. Best regards, Danilo

Hi Piotr !
Beautiful exposure - the sky looks very impressive as a result.
Well done.
Best regards, Daniel
