This looks really great as a Canvas or Metal Mounted print, but this photograph of Bunglas cliffs is also available as: a greetings card or post card, an iPad cover, an iPhone cover, a throw pillow, a tote bag, and even a duvet cover!

This image was cropped from a full 360° panorama. To really appreciate the view try the virtual reality version. (It is best viewed Full Screen via the link of the same name just below the small version.) The virtual reality version was published as part of the World Wide Panorama (WWP) project in their “Best of 2010” event.

The Bunglas cliffs, in South West Donegal, Ireland are the seaward side of Slieve League mountain (in Irish: “Sliabh Liag”). The eroded face of the mountain top falls 601m (1972 feet) into the Atlantic Ocean. They are the highest cliffs in Ireland and are said by the locals to be the highest sea cliffs in Europe. (This is disputed, depending on your definitions of “cliff” and “Europe”!)
In terms of Irish tourist attractions, the Cliffs of Moher may be more famous, however the cliffs at Bunglas are considerably taller and are now established on the tourist trail for any visitor who comes this far North.
Slieve League is popular with hill walkers and ramblers. Many of them will walk up the “Pilgrim’s Path” from the landward side, being rewarded when they crest the hill with a fabulous sea view.
For those less committed to exercise and deferred gratification, there is a car park at Bunglas and they can drive the first 1,000 feet of the climb and, having parked the car, can then enjoy the sea view as they walk up the the second 1,000 feet.
This photograph presents a more than 200° view, cropped from a full HDR panoramic image, stitched from multiple original shots. (Details below.)
To get some idea of the scale you can pick out the path from the car park at the lower-mid-left of the image. The path winds around behind the photographer (we are at an elevation of about 1500 feet) and at the mid-right a walker can be seen breaking the horizon on his way to the summit.

This is part of my new postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card .

      This Image received a Bronze Award in the Nature section of the Epson International Photographic Pano Awards 2011  
                One of three of mine to receive a Pano Award       


Techie Photographic Detail
The source images were shot in groups of three (bracketed with +2 and -2 stops) as Canon Raw images on a Canon EOS 5d with a 16mm fisheye lens. They were stitched and blended together using a free, open source, program called Hugin. Hugin in turn invokes a program called Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect. Then this image was cropped out of the total panorama. It represents about a 200° view taken out of the 360° stitched panorama.
