Cork photographer’s footage of the Wild Atlantic Way will leave you speechless.Vimeo / Peter Cox

Over the past few years there have been a number of aerial videos of Ireland posted online, but this one, “Atlantic Light” posted by Cork photographer Peter Cox, is really breathtaking.

For a start, it’s certainly the clearest video we’ve seen posted. In fact, the clarity of the aerial shots taken along the west coast of Ireland makes it seem surreal.

On Vimeo Cox writes, “For over a year now, I've been working on a project to produce a new book of aerial photographs of Ireland's west coast. While making these images, I've also been shooting video with a view to producing a short film.

“This represents a highlight reel of the journey to date along the Wild Atlantic Way. If you'd like to learn more and see the upcoming book, please visit the Kickstarter page at

It seems that this isn’t the first time that Cox has had success with crowdfunding. Back in 2012 Cox raised almost $40,000 to created his book “The Irish Light.” His initial goal had been just $11k.
