Photographer's Note

Coming back to the discussion started some time ago by Hercules: Does the size matter? :-)
Cliffs of Moher, with maximum height of 214 meters (702 ft), are not even the highest cliffs in Ireland. Slieve League are three time higher (601 m). Just for a comparison the Eiffel Tower in Paris has 324 m, and Empire State Building in New York with antenna has 443.2 m. The ranking of highest cliffs in Europe is actually constantly evolving. May be people did not pay attention to such things before? But it is the quality what makes the Cliffs of Moher one of the most visited attractions in Ireland.

We spent almost a whole day with darek1978, walking along the cliffs and looking for a good POV. For me the best possible view is the typical one not far from the visitor center. Darek liked much more the furthest point, which you can spot in this photo far on the horizon next to the tower, it was few kilometres away. I am sure he will share with us his POV very soon. I believe to make a good photo you have to be in the right place at the right light conditions and therefore I am not satisfied with this result. I feel like I have to go back there for the fourth time in the future.

The wind which we experienced was so strong that it was probably not quite smart for me to change constantly lenses. This may be one of the last photos before my camera sensor got permanently damaged with a dust particle. I cannot afford a new one so in my future photos you will be able to spot a very characteristic “signature” of my camera :-)
