Bunglas, Carrick, County Donegal, Ireland
These magnificent cliffs are among the highest sea cliffs in Europe. The Slieve League Cliffs are 2000ft high & reach almost three times higher than the more famous “Cliffs of Moher”
Remarkably there are remains of an early Christian monastic site on the sides of these cliffs, with a chapel and beehive huts. There are also ancient stone remains that suggest that the mountain was a site of pilgrimage before the arrival of Christianity!
I really wanted to capture a different angle of these cliffs than the standard postcard photos that are captured here by every other visitor. To achieve this I traveled to the opposite end of the cliffs, a few miles away from the bustling tourist trap. This image was captured from the sea looking inland during the “golden hour” when the vibrant golden sunset light started reflecting off the cliff face. This lesser seen angle enabled me to fit the entire Slieve League ridge into one photo
