Inis Mór sunrise, sunset

Arriving at Dún Aonghasa at 9am on Friday morning I had the place to myself, as the first ferries from the mainland don't get in until 11:30 or so, and was greeted by a near impenetrable wall of sea fog that reduced visibility to under 10 meters at times. I came back that night around 9pm, again after the last ferry had returned most tourists to the mainland at 6pm, and I stayed in the hillfort until well after sunset, alone in silence save for the crash of the waves below me.
