IN PICTURES – The cliffs of Moher

The cliffs of Moher are a stretch of 8 kilometer stone giants in Ireland, rising 124 meters above the Atlantic Ocean. These photos give you an idea, but nothing beats the live experience: climbing up the steps while the wind is playing with your hair, the sound of gushing waves crashing against the rocks and – most likely – dramatic rain clouds gathering above your head, making the stunning views all the more intense.
