Flying to the outer limits
Off the Beara coastline lies an uninhabited island that has enchanted me for many years. It is in fact three islands, the western end being divided by two channels. I have been through the channels in a boat, I have landed on the island a few times for picnics and more recently for a Mass ceremony
There used to be people living on the island up until the middle of the 20th century, and a pier on Kilcatherine served as a loading place for turf to be shipped out. There are ruins on the eastern southern sheltered side of the island. where the land slopes to the sea, unlike the cliffs on the Kenmare Bay side to the north.
The above shows the channels that divide the island into three, looking across to the Miskish Mountains across Coulagh Bay
This view is from just out from Kilcatherine Point showing the island stretching out into the Atlantic Ocean. with not much after before you get to North America
This was the shot I flew out there for, showing the whole length of the island. complete with amazing surf. On the left you can see Kilcatherine Point and across Coulagh Bay to Eyeries village and Miskish Mountain
The risk of course is the drone might crash into the sea, and be a right off. But the reward is a shot like this with the 20 mega pixel camera
Drone used Phantom 4 Pro Plus
