Photographer's Note

Malin Head (Irish: Cionn Mhálanna) is the most northerly headland of the mainland of Ireland (and of Ulster. It is not in Northern Ireland, though more northerly than any part of it.) The most northerly point is actually a headland 2 km northeast of Malin Head, Inishowen Peninsula, County Donegal. It lies at latitude 55.38ºN. Malin Head gives its name to the Malin sea area. The weather station at Malin Head (built 1955) is an important element of the Irish meteorological service Met Éireann, providing weather reports and plays its part in the official Weather Forecasts.

The picture: A beach situated in the Malin Head harbour, only a few steps from there... in the image can be seen the strong winds that collides against the farthest north coast of Ireland.

Thanks for looking!
