Living in county Donegal on Ireland's far North West Coast requires a certain amount of patience. Which is maybe why there is an overwhelming air of old world charm. From it's rugged mountains, numerous salt lakes and stunning beaches is it any wonder that Donegal is fondly know as the 'Hidden Gem' OF Ireland.
The remote location of Donegal in part adds to it's mystical charm. With many people and villages speaking the Gaeltacht (Ireland's Celtic tongue) you get a sense of Ireland as it was years ago.
Donegal is also know for it's particularly changing weather with the North West Coast taking the beating of the Wild Atlantic in all it's force. Thus giving it some of the most rugged coastline along the Wild Atlantic Way.
However with a little patience the sun will come out and when it does there is nowhere more special to be than here in Donegal. So it was with great delight that yesterday evening I was welcomed with one of those evenings and so off to the beach I went with my camera and tripod in toe. To enjoy a beautiful autumn sunset on the stunning Maghery Strand.
