Malin Head, Co. Donegal

Malin Head is most northernly point of the island of Ireland, after this place the next stop is the north pole, and I can confirm that the day we went there, it was absolutely freezing, and we didn't really stay that long, just 15/20 minutes to admire the landscape before starting to realize that we were turning into ice cubes, and it was a week ago, so end of march. In this place, during the WWII, they wrote with stones the world EIRE, and probably is what you would expect to photograph there. I did a few shots, I didn't like them, so I choose to develop the other ones. My friend Alberto will probably be disappointed about that, but I don't publish pictures that a tourist expect to do, but I publish the pictures I like, regarding their meaning or whatever is the subject. So here we are with some of the interesting (or at least for me) pictures I took in that cold, cold place.

Aran Island, Co. Donegal

Ok, just to make it clear once for all: I'm not talking about the Aran IslandS, the ones in front of Galway, but the Aran Island (no S you see?! It's just one island) also known as Arranmore, in County Donegal.
Anyway, the Aran Island, which is, according to Wikipedia, "the largest inhabited island of County Donegal, and the second largest in all of Ireland". It is a pretty big Island, or at least for irish standards, and if you get there be sure you are with a car or at least with a bike, unless you really, really like to walk.
We visited this island first thing in the morning of the second day of our trip to Donegal, and I have to say that is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't spend more than 3/4 hours in there, as is big but not that big, especially if you are driving.
