Loop Head West Clare, on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. So many beautiful orchids
Whats not to love?
We were not so keen on the dizzying height of the cliffs, but photographed from a safe distance, you had to admire the geology, its things like this, the folds in this rock, a bedding plane pushed to almost 90 degrees, that make me feel very small, just a spec in the universe, just passing by, at the whim of forces of untold strength.
There was lots of wildlife too
Loop Head, is at the mouth of the river Shannon.
It’s a popular place to catch sight of dolphins, the water was heaving with seabirds, and there was a pungent smell of fish, and those people willing to sit at the edge of the cliff were getting very excited, we crept a little closer, all the black flecks in this photo are birds either on the water or diving, there was obviousley a large shoal of fish passing through.
and the distinctive black shape are of course dolphins. Not very dramatic dolphin photographs, unlike these beauties , I’m leased to say we had a better chance to see the magical world of dolphins, they’ll get a post all of their own…
