View of the area from the Corkscrew Hill in the County Clare, West Ireland
This past summer, I spent three weeks driving all around Ireland and the Irish countryside. On the west coast along the N67 national road, I ran across an interesting site. The road was in a corkscrew shape. The landscape of the winding road going up the steep hill in the Irish countryside is the best view from above.
The popular winding hillside road lies between Ballyvaughan and Lisdoonvarna in the Burren High Stone Moutain. The more common name is Corkscrew Hill. It is a hillside in County Clare that has an elevation of over 100 meters. The road was created during The Famine in the mid-1800s. The Irish government introduced the Famine Relief Scheme which saw approximately 100,000 people employed.
I thought this was a perfect location to launch my Mavic Pro 2 Drone. The photograph is shot with the drone at about 200 feet elevation. I found that at this height, the view of the picture can get a real feel for the winding Irish road.
