Roches Point Lighthouse #1

Roches Point lighthouse at night, County Cork, Ireland

The story behind this image

One of just many dramatic coastline locations in the southwest of Ireland, this is Roches Point on the edge of the Atlantic ocean.

My wife Liz and I spent a couple of hours here shooting the stills for my Roches Point Time Lapse video, and this is one of those stills from the time lapse shoot, individually processed as a stand-alone image.

A great start to the week that my wife Liz and I spent exploring this wonderful and wild coastline.
