Photographer's Note

This is Fanad Lighthouse in the north of County Donegal. The area is a very untouched and windswept part of Ireland and although there are caravan parks for tourists, it experiences nothing like the hordes of tourists one sees in Kerry and Dublin.

The origins of the name Fanad are lost in time, but it is thought that it derives from the Gaelic meaning "sloping ground". Although this place has a population of only 700, 30% of it is Irish-speaking.

I had a lot of trouble with the diffused light here, and so used a 10 stop filter to try and lift it.
