|Photo taken at Killarney National Park.|
South and west of the town of Killarney are the world famous Lakes of Killarney. Killarney National Park, 10,236 hectares in extent, comprises the mountains and woodlands surrounding the Lakes as well as the three Lakes themselves. The Park includes the peaks of Mangerton, Torc, Shehy and the Purple mountains while just to the west of the Park rises MacGillycuddys Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland.
The nucleus of the National Park is the 4,000 hectare Bourn Vincent Memorial Park, formerly known as the Muckross Estate, which was presented to the State in 1932 by Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Bourn and their son-in-law Senator Arthur Vincent to be Ireland's first National Park. In recent years, lands and waters of the former Kenmare Estate have been added, including Knockreer, Ross Island and Innisfallen.
In 1981, the Park was designated by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve, part of a world network of natural areas which have conservation, research, education and training as major objectives.

Dit is Ierland, Niek.
Zelf ben ik ook een an van Ierland en heb dan ook vele foto's geplaatst op TL.
Deze foto pakt de sfeer daar bijzonder goed.
Hi Niek -
I like your presentation of Ireland!! We are trying to get there this weekend, don't know if we can make it happen!

Great notes-so detailed.Thanks.
The photo is excellent - love the way the stream pulls the eye to the bridge then rises to the soft blue/green background.
I am amazed that the photo has been viewed so many times for so few points. I THINK IT IS A GREAT PHOTO.
Great POV and surroundings. Water a bit overexposed (too bright)and needs a bit of color contrast. Heck I will do a Workshop..brb
