I'm getting out of the car, having some food in my right hand and a bottle of water in my left. We're taking a break on our way back from Ennis, a tranquil town in South-West Ireland that doesn't offer much apart from gift shops, small alleys and a statue on a roundabout. Accordingly I'm quite spiritless.
However I'm taken by this place. My dad was here already two days ago on one of his early morning trips. "I should get out of bed earlier" I think but I put this idea aside and rather reach for my camera lying in the foot well and swap my bottle for it. I hop over three large puddles - 'pothole' you would call them in Germany - and bound over some smaller boulders down to the cliff that the tide exposed.
I'm delighted by the combination of vibrant green algae, rugged rock and the puddles that remain in the throughs. The largest accumulation of algae surrounds a wet spot and is located after about two thirds of the cliffs. In conjunction with the interesting rock formation next to it produces a beautiful picture. I bring the camera close to my eye and enjoy the beauty I can see. Click.
