Being pushed off my feet and inbetween squalls of rain and blown seawater I got out of the car and looked along the coast of Achill Island on Irelands west coast. Though not a particularly stormy day for December it was freezing without gloves. The salt in the air was refreshing and the act of taking a photograph though a little difficult was a rewarding interaction with this most vibrant and exciting landscape. I love it. Taken in December 2006.
