    Sunset from Leenane last weekend. 17mm & nd10 filter.

    Gorgeous area with Maam, Ashleigh Falls and Delphi Valley / Doolough nearby.

    From Wikipedia: Leenane / Leenaun

    It is on the shore of Killary Harbour (Ireland's only fjord), on the northern edge of Connemara and is on the route of the Western Way long-distance trail. The village is at the junction of the N59 and R336 roads in a valley between the mountains of Munterowen West and Devilsmother, with a direct view of Ben Gorm mountain to the north, across the fjord.
    Leenaun was the setting for the film, The Field, and of Martin McDonagh's plays The Beauty Queen of Leenane and The Lonesome West.

      Wonderful! Such great colours, and the still water gives such a lovely sense of peace to the image. Great to see an Irish sun right on the horizon, we don't often get to see that!

      Very nice work on this one Trevor. Lovely tones, a very understated, serene kind of beauty.
