Glencolumbkille, Malin Beg, Donegal, Ireland
What more could one say about the ‘Silverstrand Beach’ other than it’s simply one of the most stunning beaches you could ever lay eyes on! Ireland’s finest example of a horseshoe beach/cove with the most amazing scenery all round it for miles as far as the eye can see. Ideally placed on the very western point of rural Donegal, far away from the everyday bustling of congested towns & motorway jams etc.
This recent photo was captured via panoramic method. I captured 16 wide angle photos on an overlap, then combined them all together into this single final photo. It was the only way to fit this extremely wide scene into one photo to show exactly what the human eye would see when standing here.
Standing at ground level you are still extremely high above this cove which was carved deep into the surrounding bedrock over millions of years of wave erosion. There’s steep path with hundreds of steps leading down to this sandy shore. For this particular photo I decided to fly high above this cove to show an aerial ‘angels view’ of the entire beach & it’s detailed surrounding geology
It’s a very surreal feeling to just gaze out onto the vast Atlantic Ocean from here & think that the next stop is Canada! Silver Strand is pretty much a little bit of heaven tucked away safe & sound here in the ‘Wilds of Donegal’
