Greystones (Irish: Na Clocha Liatha) is located at the shores of the Irish Sea near Bray Head in the beautiful County of Wicklow in the east of Ireland. The rugged cliffs of Greystones beach are gorgeous and offer many exciting landscape photography opportunities. This coastal landscape photograph in black & white captures one of the beautiful viewpoints. In the distance on the horizon, a freight ship dropped its anchor. Hence the title “In the Distance”.

This Irish coastal landscape photograph in B&W was created using a longer exposure time of five minutes. As a result, the seawater and clouds in the sky appear smoother. The photo is also less busy because of this smoothening effect.
