Ardmore Round Tower and Cliff Walk

I visited Ardmore in late January in the middle of 2 forecast storms, on the one day I took the camera out, luckily I had a perfect day for taking photos. Ardmore Co.

I had been scouting Hook Head, Kilfarrasy and Annestown Beach as possible locations for a sunset long exposure shoot.
