This is just part of the beach at Portsalon in Donegal, Ireland. It is very beautiful to approach this from an elevated position.
I took the information below from some research on the area and not even I realised I was living quite so close to the second most beautiful beach in the world. If Ireland had better summer weather I might be inclined to agree but even on dull days it is still pretty nice to look at.

Portsalon has the second most beautiful beach in the world, according to the Observer. Its wedge of golden sand sweeps gently under the Atlantic amidst vast skies and distant mountains. The whole place is part of a National Heritage Area, with plenty of wildlife and stunning views on offer. A headland protects the beach from the Atlantic’s worst weather. Porsalon Beach is also a Blue Flag winner and patrolled by lifeguards in summer.

    Love the composition Joyce….. lines and layers always produce a pleasant effect to the eye; and you have managed these quite well in this capture. Do you have more images of this beach with the mountains in the distant? I guess I will have to consult my World Heritage book for more info on Portsalon. Thank you for sharing.

  • Thank you dear Hany……………I do have more to upload……………..I will do that later when I have watched my lovely sexy men in black tight trousers dancing the Argentine Tango with scantily clad ladies of the night……………….that is juxtaposed with getting my house ready for Christmas………….I am rapidly running out of days……………however as I am excellent at multi tasking I have no doubt that I will be able to fit everything in……………..I leave you now with a hesitation…………………from you little Irish busy person……………………….Joyce!!

    This makes me want to dive in right now. I love it. Are all the beaches in Ireland below steep cliffs?

  • No my dear they are not……………..this one is approached from green fields sweeping up from the Atlantic…………………it is beautiful………………….miles long and a great little pub at the end……………….might be a bit cold at the minute though……………………thank you darling…………………..xx
