Love taking pictures of these Cliffs, just wish I could do them justice in my pictures. It’s a challenge to get the right photographic conditions due to their location and weather factors. Any time I go, the weather is not ideal for pics , or else there is constant atmospheric haze surrounding them. I will keep trying to capture the one ;-)
The Cliffs of Moher (Irish: Aillte an Mhothair, lit. cliffs of the ruin, also known as the Cliffs of Mohair) are located in the parish of Liscannor at the south-western edge of the Burren area near Doolin, which is located in County Clare, Ireland.
The cliffs rise 120 meters (394 ft) above the Atlantic Ocean at Hag’s Head, and reach their maximum height of 214 meters (702 ft) just north of O’Brien’s Tower, eight kilometres away. The cliffs boast one of Ireland’s most spectacular views. On a clear day the Aran Islands are visible in Galway Bay, as are the valleys and hills of Connemara.
O’Brien’s Tower is a round stone tower at the approximate midpoint of the cliffs. It was built by Sir Cornelius O’Brien, a descendant of Ireland’s High King Brian Boru, in 1835, as an observation tower for the hundreds of tourists that frequented the cliffs even at that date. From atop that watchtower, one can view the Aran Islands and Galway Bay, the Maum Turk Mountains and the Twelve Pins to the north in Connemara, and Loop Head to the south.
Moher tower, located at Hag’s Head, is a square stone ruin which is believed[who?] to be the remains of a watchtower placed during Napoleon’s reign in Europe.
For moherman, Cliffs of Moher one of the new 7 wonders of the Natural World ;-)
