Horses having a frolic overlooking Killarney National Park, Ireland photo by susan wellington

These horses we recently encountered on a bus tour to the south-west coast of Ireland which is absolutely stunning. So green. It's no exaggeration to say the entire country is green and lush with grass and millions of sheep. The bus driver told us that the irish farmers were paid by the european union not to farm anything else on the land. You see nothing else growing. It's a bit of a waste of fertile soil to be sure to be sure.

The horses are in an area overlooking Killarney National Park and the photo's taken at the highest point of the area. It was quite a bleak, rainy day so I thought I'd convert the photo into black and white to make it more dramatic as the original colours of the whole scene were a bit dull. Quite simple processing. Just changed the black point in paint.net and lightened. Then converted to black and white in perfect effects 8 and sharpened.
