Majestic is an Understatement

Have you heard the news? Pantone has declared emerald to be the colour of the year for 2013! I couldn’t love that colour more if I tried, and I think it’s high time I posted something related to Pantone’s decision. As St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, now seems like an appropriate time to post (another) tribute to the Emerald Isle with a photographic journey through the ever-so-emerald Cliffs of Moher.

Having spent a few hours at the Cliffs in the summer of 2010, I still can’t get over how massive and awe-inspiring they are. In fact, to say the Cliffs are massive is a major understatement. Majestic, humongous, and indescribable would be much better adjectives in this instance. And they are nothing if they aren’t cloaked in emerald.

But rather than trying to describe them with words, I’ll just let my photos do the talking for me.

Without further adieu, here are the Cliffs of Moher:

  1. Beautiful photos! I love the last one! I’ve been there twice: the first time it rained like hell (sideways, upside-down, the way Irish rain is) and the second time it was about 65 degrees and sunny the whole day.

    • Thanks for the comment and the photo compliments! I found a way to sneak myself into the last one without being very obvious 😉

      Gotta love how sneaky that Irish rain is! I was in Dublin this Christmas and found myself trapped in a pub more than once due to upside-down downpours. Now that I think about it, maybe it’s actually the pub owners who control the weather…

      Cheers,
      Steph
