    How would you describe this Irish scenery?

    How would you describe the view in the picture I have attached in a dramatic manner?

    This is not an assignment. There is no specific context. I am just interested in creative and dramatic English.

    If you click on the picture, it'll get bigger.

    Re: How would you describe this Irish scenery?

    Why are you particularly interested in creative and dramatic English? (Note that "dramatic English" doesn't really work unless you're actually writing a script for a drama.)

    It's a picture of a road running along the top of a fairly craggy cliff.

    If you're determined to make a description more dramatic, please try doing it yourself first.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I really love poetic and literary English. How would a writer describe this scenery? They would probably use terms like restless sea, towering mountain, emerald green, etc....

    Perhaps:

    It's a coastal road, with the mountains on one side and the sea on the other side.

    Thanks but not poetic enough.

    Well, you can easily overdo it with the modifiers.

    How poetic do you want to be, exactly?

    I would describe it as a coastal scene.

    I clicked on the picture. Did you get bigger?

    Please don't edit your posts after people have responded. It can make the responses look nonsensical. You should edit only when there are no responses or if one of the responses specifically asks you to do so.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
