His photo of Golden Strand, Achill Island in Western Ireland received the most votes on social media. The photo was taken from a drone flying above the beach at Golden Strand and captures a stream entering the sea. The stream is a dark reddish-brown colour because it contains dissolved organic material from the nearby peat bogs that cover most of Achill Island. Also visible in the top-right of the image are the sand dunes that fringe the beach and protect low-lying areas further inland from flooding and salinisation.
