Adventure-loving photographer captures stunning scenery of Cliffs of Moher
An adventure-loving photographer captured the beauty around the Cliffs of Moher as he kayaked to the base of one of the sea stacks and climbed to the top.
Patrick Stritch created a video of his journey and the images are simply stunning.
Stritch, of Co Clare, and a friend scaled the sea stack using ropes and other climbing equipment.
At the top they found all sorts of gems including a bird’s nest full of eggs.
Using his head-cam, Stritch looked out at the beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean. He also bravely peered oved the edge of the stack to see the vast drop down on to the rocks below.
This trip was certainly not for the faint-hearted, but the rewards were clear for Stritch and his friend.
He said: “The video shows my friend and I climbing a sea stack at the base of the Cliffs of Moher. We were the first ever to climb it.
“The reason I started photography seven years ago was to capture the magic that I see and am captivated by when I’m in the outdoors. I want to pay tribute to this beauty and will try to reflect what I have seen with my own two eyes through my photography.”
The video is a great showcase of just one of the several beauty spots along the west coast of Ireland.
Since being marketed as the Wild Atlantic Way, there has been a large rise in the number of visitors to the west of Ireland, with tourists from all around the world enjoying the stunning scenery and attractions on offer.
