A lighthouse somwhere between Dingle and Galway, that I passed by while sailing on the Jeanie Johnston
15×30 cm, oil on deep edge canvas, framed

I spotted this lighthouse from out at sea on the way from Dingle to Galway. My best guess is that it’s Bull Rock off the Kerry coast. Something about the position – not at the top of the rock but perched lower down right at the cliff edge – makes it seem especially remote and on guard, and under threat of tipping into the ocean it watches over.

Bull Rock?
