Somehow this reminds me of a number of places in County Wicklow. The ridge, the trees and the houses in close proximity to water. The one thing that throws me is the broad expanse of possibly tidal waters in the foreground. I wonder why those stakes are placed at the end of the falling water? Fish traps perhaps?
