Sky Road
The Sky Road is famous for its spectacular views of the Connemara Mountains. It takes you through a largely unsettled area where lakes, mountains, bogs (turf fields) and sheep dotting the hills are more prevalent than people. This road with eventually take you to a Gaeltacht (Irish speaking) town of Cong.
On top of the road there is a little parking space to take a rest and to enjoy the magnificent scenery.

Bravo pour la photo. Malgré vent et marée, que ca doit être paisible de vivre à cette endroit. Gilles

Very nice shot indeed, Piotr - also reminds me of parts of Scotland.

Lovely sharpness, colours and points of interest throughout the shot. Really a nice view.

Hi Piotr,
Beautiful capture of the rugged west coast of Ireland.
The treeless landscape seen in brilliantly clear colors, excellent sharp details and wonderful depth.
The scattered cottages add lovely scale as they move towards the vibrant blue of the sea and sky.
Regards, Tom

Hi Piotr,

That is a nicely wide point of view you have found here!
Seems a very nice road to take. I'd love to do a photo-trip of Ireland for a few weeks. A view like this surely makes it worth doing! :-)

Have a good weekend,
