|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is Malin Head, Irelands most northerly point.|
"The forces that created Malin Head also shaped its landscape.Four levels of shoreline can be seen at Ballyhinnin.The land here is rising, leaving behind unique evidence of ancient beaches."
"For over 200 years, Malin Head's location has given it a vital role in communications.Even today, people know it from the daily shipping forecast."
It has played its part as a look out point throughout history.
The winds blow across the peninsula, so the houses are built single storey, tucked in close to the land.
Thanks for looking.

I recognized this from the red barn in the distance. I took one from the top facing the same direction also showing the different layers. Your note is very informative
Pitty that you experienced the real Irish weather. These bleak landscapes become different with just a touch of sun.

We visited Southern Ireland a few years ago now, and its somewhere you need to return and soon. So much to offer, we were made so welcome, and love the relaxed way of life.
You show an expanse of ruggedness and greenery a trait of the place. The croft type homes dotted about create a wonderous scene and feel about the place.
I love the way you have incorporated the tiny flowers again to your positioning, as it makes a huge difference to the balance.
