Black Head Twilight

from 53.00

Black Head Lighthouse, perched on the edge of The Burren, Ireland, looks out over Galway Bay.

I wanted to emphasize the foreground, not just because it has interesting texture, but also because it is the feature that the The Burren is famous for. The area is easily identified by its bare, barren looking, limestone rock — one of the largest karst landscapes in Europe. What many visitors don't realize, though, is that between the flat slabs of limestone, in the crevices, lies the secret to the Burren's magic. Through millennia of glaciation and, more recently, interference by neolithic man, the plant communities that survive here are unique to this area and certain species occur in abundances not seen in many other places, partly because they could survive the full force of the Atlantic's wind huddled in together within these crevasses feeding off of the warmth absorbed by the bare rock.
