I have posted images from this area previously here (updated with a couple of new images by the way) , but this time I have a different perspective, sea level. I don't want to describe how to get here because I don’t feel I want to recommend it in any way but I have found a route to the beach that I felt was quite reasonable without anything too risky.
It’s an interesting cove with some beautiful sea stacks to capture as well as nice foreground. It has been made a little difficult to capture just at the moment as sunrise is not in the best position being almost in the frame for a lot of angles. Sunset is a little better casting some nice light on the cliffs and stacks if clear. It has taken me quite a few visits to work out the best time to capture it in the best light and tide positions, which during the winter I feel is sunset at low tide.
I struggled a bit with coming up with a composition that truly conveyed the scale of the main stack and having to use a wide angle doesn’t help since it’s so close to shore. I was lucky on one occasion with some sea fog that rolled in to give the place a more mysterious feel. .
I don’t think I’m done here yet but here are a few images I have come up with so far. Just click on the images to see them full size. As always feel free to comment below, I always love to get a bit of feedback.
Update: February 2019, I just came across a great article about the history of this area including the Possible fort and castle that was once here , link to the article here http://aerialarchaeology.blogspot.com/2014/03/illaunobrick-co-waterford.html
