Crohy Head, Dungloe, Co. Donegal

Over the last week I have been sizing up the picturesque Crohy Head for its astro photo potential. Located southwest of the town of Dungloe in Co. Donegal, the headland is rich in World War II history. As you leave of the small village of Maghery you are greeted by the distant silhouette of a World War II lookout tower above a sandy beach. I captured the Milky Way and Mars shining over the beach and tower on a hazy November night (Thursday the 13th of November).
