Photo of the Week



This week my photo of the week is The Great Pollet Arch, which is situated on the shores of the Fanad Peninsula not far from Portsalon.

We took our monthly day trip there on Saturday. 

I think it is one of our hidden treasures here in Donegal and my picture doesn't really do it the justice it deserves because it truly is a spectacular place!

We went here on Saturday on our family day trip. It was extremely hard to find and the weather was unbelievable.

This picture was taken on the side of a cliff as we could not make it onto the beach to get a proper shot.

I am petrified of heights and the only one of us to actually get down and take a picture so that in itself is a triumph and I'm very chuffed with myself!

This is a magnificent example of a sea arch, carved by the mighty force of the Atlantic Ocean.

Eventually through the passing of time and erosion the roof of this arch will collapse leaving a pair of gigantic sea stacks.
