Breaking Wave, the Fastnet Lighthouse, Co. Cork

The Fastnet Lighthouse is one of the most exposed rocks in Ireland. Rising in two pinnacles from relatively deep water, there is a submerged shelf on the south-west side which generates large waves under the right circumstances.

This wave was photographed from the lower balcony at about 150 feet up. This was on a relatively calm day - in stormy weather you wouldn't be standing on the balcony for fear of being washed away.
