Photographer's Note

The huge rock fin of "The Anvil" juts into the sea from Tory Island.

Tory Island, nine miles north of the coast of Donegal, is by common consent "the most isolated, the most desolate, the most windswept of any of the Irish islands". It is an island drenched by the sea, drenched by the elements, and drenched with history and folklore.

I found the rugged coastline of this small island fasanating to say the least. This strange formation really caught my attention. Its a pity there was no measure of scale here because this was very high and long perhaps 200 meters long.
