Inis Tuaisceart (North Island) affecionatlly known as An Fear Marabh (The Dying Man) by the local population. Part of the Blasket Island Group off the West Coast of Kerry (most westerly point in Europe). As the view from the land is to the west most people like to photograph this scene in Silhouette to emphasize the comparison with the Islands shape & that of a reposing man. I chose to take my picture early in the day to show the topography & remoteness of the Island in the Atlantic Ocean.
The Blasket Islands were once home to a thriving off shore community, now sadly deserted, but the past residents have left a rich heratige of liturature.
