Nocturne, Fanad Head, Co. Donegal
Fanad Head is one of the more dramatic and photogenic lighthouses around the coast. Made around midnight, I picked my way carefully along the adjacent headland by torchlight and found a good spot. The photograph was exposed for four minutes, giving plenty of movement in the clouds and some significant star trails which are visible in the clear patch above the light itself.
