Shaped during the Ice Age when Ireland was under glaciers, the giant rock formation called Benbulben was a regular sight as we traveled around County Sligo in northwest Ireland. We found the best views at Drumcliffe — despite the rain and deep cloud cover.
But late in the day the clouds parted and the sun came out. So we drove back out to Drumcliffe to see Benbulben in the light, and we weren’t disappointed.
But while we were there, the setting sun began to bathe everything in a lovely warm light. It was golden hour! And Benbulben looked so good in it.
