Driftwood on the beach at Buncrana.
Some images taken on a visit to Buncrana in Co. Donegal, on a dark day in May. The town is on the shore of Lough Swilly, a long narrow sea inlet, and we spent a couple of hours exploring the beach and sea front.
The lighthouse on the pier.
The wall beside the pier was decorated with a sea-life mural – something to photograph even in less than ideal weather.
Then down on to the beach. Lough Swilly is also known as the Lake of Shadows, and it was living up to its name today.
There was a lot of driftwood on the beach, full of interesting textures.
Back up on the sea front, there was another warning beacon for shipping.
The extra large sun dial was redundant in the weather conditions.
The harp, national symbol of Ireland.
A nice place, even in the conditions we were presented with.
