The beauty of the Inishark cliffs
by wicklore  9 Jul 2014
There are 200 foot cliffs plunging into the boiling sea to the southwest of the summit of Inishark.. This photo shows how the constant lashing of wave and wind have shaped one of these cliffs to resemble a lady gazing out to the west into the face of the prevailing wind and waves. The west coast of Inishark, like so many of our Atlantic Islands, consists of high, severe cliffs and angry rock walls while the land slopes gently down to the east where the island folk built their village and pier. A beautiful place to be on a hot, calm summers day but a nightmare to behold in the depthts of a winter storm. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1382/comment/17544/
