Is this perhaps the most perfect picture of Ireland ever taken? It is the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare - which featured in the Harry Potter movies - taken at night with the Milky Way resplendent in the night sky. The eerie but beautiful scene was shot in 2013 by Irish photographer Damien Stenson, whose specialty is astrophotography.

You can check out more of Damien’s work on his Facebook page which features many other amazing images of the night sky over Ireland.
