A beautiful area and some nicely laid out compositions, bringing depth and a sense of space. The best in this way for me are 1, 2, 4 & 10. I like the lighthouse one also, an imposing angle there.

These look to be a lovely set of photos, some great compositions and colours, but the clarity is lost due to the small sizes - would love to see them bigger

The two from Mizen Head stand out for me. Ireland is such a beautifully diverse and moody island - a photographic paradise!

Thanks to all for commenting so nicely. A few more of a different type still to come when I find time to do all the processing. Must remember that "less can be more" when it comes to pushing the shutter release!

Lovely set John... a real sense of space and freedom... particularly like no 4 for the light, but very strong all round...
