Sunset, Sheep's Head Lighthouse, Co. Cork

Of the five major peninsulas in the southwest of Ireland, Sheep's Head is the least travelled. This makes it an excellent place to get away from the tourist crowds and find some solitude.

Where better than the lighthouse right at the tip of the peninsula, at Sheep's Head proper? Seen here looking west into the setting Sun, I think this photograph captures the spirit of the place very well. It even has a few sheep in the foreground!

The lighthouse is two kilometers from the nearest road, so all the construction materials (including the lantern and optic) were flown in by helicopter from nearby Kilcrohane - 250 trips in total were required.
