A light that never goes out.

Crookhaven County Cork, what a dawn the most uplifting dawn shot I have ever witnessed!

Crookhaven County Cork, what a dawn the most uplifting dawn shot I have ever witnessed!

I am told my images exude a light, a spirituality that is quite special, I am rather pleased with that appraisal so I am posting a shot that (in my opinion exemplifies that). This shot was 7 years in the making! My first attempt at this view was an unsatisfactory watercolour painting. However, on this morning I believe all the elements of a perfect image came together, with the rising sun to the right of the lighthouse the focal point in the scene. It was particularly satisfying given the 4.00a.m. rise to travel to the location. Once I saw the orange glow on the horizon I knew I was not going to leave cold and disappointed. The image was taken at Crookhaven, a picturesque harbour village in West Cork. Crookhaven was once very important as the most westerly harbour along the southern Irish coast. Mail from America was collected here and the nearby Brow Head has a ruined observation tower on the summit from where Gugliemo Marconi transmitted his first message (to Cornwall) and received a reply.

below is a special smiths track to me anyway that goes well with this image (for me).

if you like this here is an acoustic version
