Breaking Wave, the Fastnet Lighthouse, Co. Cork

Breaking Wave, the Fastnet Lighthouse, Co. Cork
The Fastnet is a place of extremes. One of those is the ocean - during the Winter months it's not unusual for green water to clear the top of the lighthouse almost 180 feet above sea level. One of the reasons for this is a steep shelf off the south-western side of the rock that throws up huge waves. This was photographed on a relatively calm day!
