The small harbour at Purteen in the west of Achill Island, County Mayo, Ireland. A small white boat is moored while the tide is out on a bright, sunny, April day. In the background, the stunning Minaun cliffs jut out into the Atlantic Ocean. Above, soft, fluffy clouds float in the blue sky.

A young family is walking on a deserted Keel beach with incredible scenery in front of them. Soft, white, dreamy clouds provide a cover over a deep blue Atlantic Ocean framed by jagged cliffs and golden soft sand. The strand makes the figures look distant and isolated from the rest of the beach.

But a print of this photo.

Keel beach is empty, unusual for a Golden sunny day. The island of Inishgalloon off Achill Island sets the scene in perfect splendour as soft, white clouds drift silently overhead. The view is inspirational but isolationist at the same time.
