Kinnagoe Bay is on the North coast of the Inishowen Peninsula in North Donegal. It has two crescents of sand looking out into the North Atlantic. It is one of the best secrets of Donegal . Even though it is on a well-sign-posted scenic route most visitors miss it.
 
If you were following the Inishowen 100 scenic route clockwise around the peninsula, you would find Kinnagoe Bay after Culdaff, just past Tremone Bay and before you reach Greencastle. The road rises sharply to a hairpin bend just by the coast. On the cliff top at the edge of the road, looking out over the bay, there is a memorial to the Armada.
 
Next to the memorial there is a narrow road winding down the cliff to a car park. The beach, backed by cliffs, has soft, golden sand scattered with huge boulders.
 
It is a wonderful cove beneath a cliff. An Armada shipwreck “La Trinidad Valencera” was discovered in the bay in 1971. It is featured in the exhibition at the Tower Museum Derry.
 
If you could only visit one beach on the Inishowen peninsula I would suggest that you made it Kinnego and you would not be disappointed.
 
If you visit it ten times it will be different each time you visit. The waves have carved the rocks into wonderful shapes. Each tide piles up the sand and washes it away. The beach changes shape, the rocks get covered and re-emerge.
 

This stereographic panorama of Kinnagoe Bay is part of my postcard range. You can follow on to another gorgeous Very Ireland Post card just by following that link. In fact if you keep following the postcard links you can take a mystery tour.

Method
The panorama was created by combining 24 separate digital photographs covering every angle and with bracketed exposures. Hence the detail has been captured both in the brightest areas of the sky and in the shadows on the hillside.
 
The Source images were shot on a Canon EOS 5d DSLR with a 16 mmm Zenitar (M42 manual focus fisheye lens mounted on the on the Canon via an EOS adapter). They were shot in bracketed groups of three exposures (-2 stops to +2 stops) in Canon Raw Format.

They were stitched and blended using Hugin – a free open-source program, Hugin in turn invoked Enfuse to blend the bracketed exposures to achieve the HDR effect.
