Off Dun Aengus.jpg
This photograph was taken mid afternoon of Inishmore, the largest of the Aran Islands of the coast of Galway, Ireland. We were standing in Dun Aengus, a prehistoric fort built right up to a cliff edge with a sudden and severe drop into the ocean. This photo, taken from that cliff edge, demonstrates the unsettling and constantly changing lighting of being so far north. It is both beautiful and unsettling, particularly in the winter when the days are so short and the sun stays close to the horizon. It is that beautiful and unsettling feeling that encompassed my stay in Ireland.
