Bloody Foreland Magic

This is how I've really pictured this photo in my head 5 months before my travel in May in Ireland, and brings up all the reason why this place is called Bloody Foreland. The day started with a lot of fog turning on a cloudless day just few hours before the sunset, so picking this location and reading where those few clouds were going to roll was the right call to create this picture! The location is called Bloody Foreland as many folkloristic tales tells about one warlord called Balor of the Devil Eye, being killed by his nephew Lugh Lámh Fhada right on the promontory and the next tide of blood spilling out of the evil eye would have covered the whole hill falling back into the sea. So having those rocks hit by the warm sunset light was the main goal for me and the realisation of this picture and it worked out so well that I only took few pictures that I needed and then just sat down admiring the beauty of the moment imagining that battle occurring on that very moment!
