Dear Ancsa,

I thought that this was a very special viewpoint at the Cliffs of Moher, but no one else has uploaded such a view to Panoramio. I am surprised. And many people have viewed this photo and until now no one else has commented on it. Again I am surprised. So thank you for stopping by to share a mutual love for Ireland with me.

Have you been back a second time, recently?

Kind regards from Sydney,


Ancsa on November 29, 2008

Hi Ian, It's a beautiful photo from a beautiful place!:) I hope I can visit it again soon!! Best wishes to you in Sydney!(the other place where I wanna go one day:P)

Ian Stehbens on November 29, 2008

Do dream Ancsa. You will love Sydney and much much more in this large and varied country...quite a contrast to the neat tiny wonderful package that is Ireland. Meanwhile enjoy Sydney via Panoramio.

And may the dream be fulfilled.

Wow. I have been also! I remember seeing signs that said to the effect, that the ground was unstable. Well there were still people willing to walk and lean over the edge!!! It was along way down!!!! I think from memery there was this lighthouse I think not far from the edge and each year it got a bit closer to the edge!! But in anyway, it was very beautiful and spectacular. Thanks Ian for your photos.:-)

Yes David,

Some sat on the edge, feet dangling hoping to be the posthumous hero that rode the broken slab into the sea! I asked one young woman if when she is a mother would she allow her daughter to do what she was doing. "Definitely not!" was her reply.

Thanks for your comment of appreciation, David. I am glad you love Ireland as I do.

Hi Ian, english is not my native language. Sorry for mistakes. We have been in this wonderful place in june ´09 and walked the way till to hags head. You took a wonderful photo. Very good composition. Not many people have THESE EYES to find such views. We spent two wonderful weeks there in ireland and did many nice walks. The light, the colours (in june), mystic places, friendly people we remember during seeng such wonderful photoes. Greetings from Saxon Swizerland (near Dresden), Germany. Axel

Great photo Ian. Looks so quiet, compared to the throngs of people that are so often around. And, like Ancsa has spotted, the ocean is so flat! Best regards from your beautiful IRELAND

Axel, Alan and Ancsa

It thrills me that 3000 views of this have been made so far, because it really does deserve to be seen by people who have never been there, such as Ancsa, and as a refresher for those who have, like you Axel.

Then there are people like Alan who belong to this beautiful island - Ireland!

The opportunity for this image arose because I wanted to escape from the throngs of visitors, so I walked the cliff trails and found a number of opportunities to include foregrounds though not so many chances for framing as the tops are quite bare.

My greetings today come from the island of Tongatapu, Tonga and it is wonderful to be here and to be able to share its mystery, beauty and surprises with the wider world.


Ancsa on August 20, 2009

Hi Ian, I've been there once and I wanna visit it someday!:)

Beautiful coast of Ireland...!!!!Ian Stehbens..greetings to Brisbane from Galicia.

Ian Stehbens on January 7, 2010

Dear AnaDocal and Ancsa,

Thank you for your respective comments and enjoyment of this scene.

I am sorry, Ancsa, that you haven't received a note of thanks before this. I remember writing to you, but I was in Tonga in August and the server was very unreliable, so maybe it just didn't go through. Any way, it is lovely to have contact with you.

I have never been to Galicia, AnaDocal, so your album requires a visit from me to learn about your beautiful region.

Warm greetings from Brisbane.

This is a fabulously beautiful landscape. I see that you have a beautiful gallery in the world. Congratulations. The comments for this photo I conclude that you live near Brisbane? I ask because my cousin lives there. Greetings from Poland.

Ian Stehbens on March 10, 2010

Greetings Zygmunt,

Thank you for your appreciation of my gallery. You certainly are welcome here. I do live in Brisbane, and I have had many opportunities for travel, though I haven't been to Poland. As some of my ancestors came form Poland I am specially interested in your country too. Tell me more about your cousin: where do they live?

Warm regards from a beautiful morning in Brisbane.


Zygmunt Borowski on March 11, 2010

Hi Ian! Your gallery is very large, and browse it every day a bit. All pictures are worth a visit. The story of my cousin, I wrote in previous message. He along with his family lives north of Brisbane at Morayfield. This is probably about 50 km along the main highway. Lives there too his father (my uncle). Warm greetings from cold evening in Poland! Zygmunt.
