Alien Planet? Caught My Eye 5

Last month on Howth Cliffs I came across a brush fire near the Bailey Lighthouse .  A fortnight ago I returned to the lower cliff path for another walk. The firebrigade had got the fire under control and it seems that a relatively small section of the shrubbery burned away in the end. The charred remains are somewhat spooky. The terrain is almost like an alien planet.

The living, bright green ferns make a very striking contrast against the blackened vegetation. As you can see from the colour of the sea in the distance (on a dull day), I have not ramped up the colours to exhaggerate how it looks.
I was a bit startled to find this photo on my camera. Perhaps I had been abducted by aliens up to their space craft after all?? Or maybe I just shoved my camera in my pocket while it was still on.....

  1. Great pictures! I love the angle you have taken them on...

  2. I like the last one, it actually may seem the earth seen from the outer space!!!
