Sunset and the Elephant.

By keithh  
Two things strike me about Ireland - the first is that it's easy to see why the national colour is green and secondly, why Irish art has a history of etheriality scattered through it.

Great once again to see old friends and make new ones. Probably the best meet on the EPZ Calendar.

cheers guys.....

yep, we probably had the least amount of cloud in the whole UK for much of the weekend.

The Elephant looks more like an elephant from the sea, as of course most coastal rock formations were named by sailors and fishermen.

I like the way the water looks like ice/frozen even though it looks a warm image from the sunset colours, quite intriguing.

I was lucky in that the sea was flat calm, which allowed a long exposure without the 'milking' effect.

thanks for the comments guys.
I think you were Kate......was that Offie ensuite?
