Situated on the southeastern side of Howth Head in Dublin is Bailey Lighthouse.Built around 1814 and designed by George Halpin.The area has been the scene of a number of shipwrecks. In 1853 the PS Queen Victoria hit rocks and sank and over 80 passengers and crew died.As a result of a Board of Trade inquiry a fog bell was installed later the same year.Bailey Lighthouse was the last Irish lighthouse to go automatic in late 1996 although an attendant still lives in the Principal Keepers house.

Sensational perspective with this sheer cliff wedge shaped, which the presence of the lighthouse and the lonely house with a charm, perfect the green carpet covering it all.
Beautiful colorful and magnificent lighting, plus a perfect sharpness.
Have a good evening.

You have a really nice viewpoint on this lighthouse, and it looks like a desolate and lonely place. Great that you took that from this, when the area is so close to so many (big expensive) houses. It looks like it could be a scene from the West of Ireland. The colors are great, and I like the proportion of rich green and grey sea. The sea does look quite, whats the word....evil here. Evil may not be right choice, but there is something threatening, especially combined with your note.
Very nicely seen and captured shot.
All the best

That isolated cap with a lighthouse is wonderful Arthur
Good pov and colors I like to see that vegetation on the cliffs

a well chosen downward point of view has led to a great composition that has excluded the sky or any other focal point except the rock and the structures on it. This place looks fascinating even on a calm day, it must look formidable during a storm. Life there must require a strong character. I like very much the depth, the textures and the colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

The first thing that struck me about your shot was the clever composition. You have used the rule of thirds but in a most original form.
The light is striking the land, illuminating the grass and highlighting the ridges, so that the topography is so clearly identified.
The lighthouse, associated building and helipad are most interesting details to absorb after traversing the headland.
Take care, there is a slight haloing around the buildings and headland possibly as a result of sharpening.
My warm regards,

An exquisite composition from a great POV. It looks like a giant turtle's head; a bit mossy, perhaps, but a grand creature!

That's a very well composed image with splendid colors and contrasts.Nice amount of saturation and perfect lightning usage.Great POV too.
Have a nice day

Good morning Arthur,
The solitary location of the the lighttower and the built barracks around, justified by the rough terrain we see. Access only or rather mainly by a Helicopter, is self explained.
Those rocks "falling" to sea, not visible at dark nights.
Well taken from the POV, impressive "crevase" betweem the hills.

Un paysage merveilleux de l'Irlande, sauvage, attirant, j'aime la variété de vert, le POV et la composition
