Fanad Head Peninsula, County Donegal, Ireland
Fanad Head Lighthouse was conceived as essential to seafarers following a shipwreck which happened over 200 years ago. In December 1811 the frigate ‘Saldanha’ sought shelter from a storm. Sailing towards Fanad as she frantically fought the raging wind and waves. Sadly, reaching the shore safely never happened and the ship was wrecked off the northern coast with all 250+ men on board.Shortly afterwards Fanad Head Lighthouse was built to help guide ships and sailors safely on their journeys. Still in operation to this day, standing on a rocky outcrop on north Donegal’s Wild Atlantic Way blinking its guiding light out to sea to aid ships past its inviting yet deceiving rocky waters.

Fanad Lighthouse is a personal favourite of mine. Overlooking Inishowen peninsula in the distance & surrounded with ancient jagged rocks, its location is stunning. These rocks have aided the most unique rock pools to form amongst them. When the sun shines, they reflect a shimmering spectrum of colours. During this visit I was like a giant frog leaping from pool to pool with excitement trying to find the greatest angle to photograph ? I only wish I could play leapfrog here every day ?
