Haunting Poulnabrone


Note: image watermark will NOT be shown on the delivered print.

Poulnabrone dolmen is an unusually large dolmen, or portal tomb located in The Burren, Co Clare.  Situated on one of the most desolate and highest points of the region, it comprises three standing portal stones supporting a heavy horizontal capstone, and dates to the Neolithic period, probably between 4200 BC and 2900 BC.

This image was shot on a March evening with an almost full moon that helped illuminate the foreground. It is a 60 second exposure, which adds drama & motion to the low level clouds overhead The Burren that evening.
