Northern Ireland, June 2005: Burren

Another of Ireland's many ancient church ruins, this one in the Burren.

In the Burren, one of Ireland's ubiquitous limestone stone walls. They are used to mark property lines, to shield animals from winds and cold, and they are made simply to get it out of the way and out of the soil.

A rock formation at the base of the Cliffs of Moher. Difficult to see are the hundreds of sea gulls perched on the rock's ledges.
