Mizen Head Sunset (Pano), Co. Cork

Mizen Head Sunset (Pano), Co. Cork
Mizen Head is the most south-westerly point on the Irish mainland and the home to a fog station and lighthouse since 1909 and 1959, respectively. Seen here at sunset on an evening with heavy swell, the location shows its remote and forbidding character. The lighthouse and fog signal were automated in 1993, and in 1994 the station was opened to the public as a visitor center. Worth a trip if you're in the area!
