Sandy beach

Lighthouses and endless expanses

The Westerheven lighthouse can only be reached on foot or by bike. It is about 1 km from the outer dike towards the lake and has become a popular photo motif thanks to its two symmetrical houses.

This post mainly shows it from the outer dike. It made sense to use different focal lengths (Nikkor 24-70 mm / f / 2.8 and Nikkor 70-200mm f / 2.8) and to create a small series of comparisons for the image size depending on the focal length


Tidal Island of Omey

Omey Island (Irish Iomaí) is located near Clifden and can be reached over a wide sandy beach at low tide. This is also possible by car, as a "fairway" is well marked - but one thinks "just do not stop" when crossing.

There is a lake and a sacred spring on the island. The island is considered a place of worship for Saint Feichin of Sligo, who founded a monastery here, where he died in 664 AD.
