Hi, I'm from Frankfurt/Main (Germany). I'm not a professional photographer. I take photos mostly only during my holidays. The photos from Australia were all taken using a Sigma SD14 DSLR in raw format (.X3F) and then later converted to .JPG with the Sigma Photo Pro 2.1 Software (The Version 3.0 does not work properly on my Laptop). In case you are interested in the photos in their original size, please let me know and I will e-mail them. Please be aware that .X3F have between 8 and 18 MB, .JPG have between 1 and 9 MB. Zipping does not help in reducing the filesizes. Regards, Bernd

This is the view of Glen Head Mountain in Glencolmcille, County Donegal. I believe Doonalt is the area on the side of the mountain directly under the Watch Tower, just a tiny structure in this photo on the top of the mountain. In reality it is a huge structure. The lowest window is about 12' off the ground. According to a tourist guide produced by the Oideas Gael in 1997: "In 1798 French forces invaded Ireland to support revolutionaries committed to establishing a democratic republic, independent of Britain. Although they quickly defeated the invaders, the "Year of the French" concentrated the British government's mind on the ease with which enemy troops could land in Ireland. They errected defenses around the coast including three signal towers at Cionn an Charraigin, Malainn Bhig and Cionn Ghlinne. Built between 1804 and 1806, these towers were to provide an early warning in the event of an attempted invasion. Located on headlands which commanded a good view of the sea, all signal towers are within sight of other such towers or military installations. Most were only manned in the first decade of the nineteenth century and were finally abandoned after Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo in 1815.

Love this picture,my mam went to this school

This is in wrong place on map. The peninsula in the distance is Horn Head where the photo is located on Google map. This is about 2 miles due north of Rosapenna.
