L8938 : High tide rocks

taken 11 years ago, 7 km WNW of Camus Oughter, Co Galway, Ireland

High tide rocks
High tide rocks
Erosion over centuries of the blanket bog has left a mass of glacial erratic boulders littering the rock surface, with occasional islands of peat. Each boulder has become an island in this exceptionally high tide. The distant view is of the Maumturk Mountains with a cap of cumulus cloud in this warm, unstable evening air.
