The Cliffs of The Kerry Peninsula, Ireland

A simple fact of life is that sometimes when you break the rules, good things will happen. Now, If you’re a photographer, and these rules happen to be about trespassing, you’ll find that crossing the line will usually lead to a much better view. Well, either that or some disgruntled farmer will chase you off his property with a baseball bat. So yea, there’s that…

Thankfully in this particular case, there was no angry farmer waiting for me. There was just this amazing view of the Kerry Coastline and a few dozen cows with confused looks on their faces.
