Roancarrig lighthouse in Bantry Bay was the very first I shot for my lighthouse postcard series, because my sponsor had a salmon farm close by and I wanted to show him my appreciation by shooting Roancarrig first. That was way back in 1993, long before other people were taking pictures of Irish lighthouses

Nowadays it is easy to fire up a drone and go out to these lighthouses, as I did for these pictures. These were taken using my DJI Phantom 4 Pro plus which has a 20 mega pixel camera

The granite tower is just for show these days, the light in it no longer works, replaced by that metal tower you see stood beside it

This island was used in the Neil Jordan movie 'Ondine' starring Colin Farrell. The house was put on the market for €150,000 

I shot a video out there. I hope you enjoy watching it
