1500 year old Beehive Huts on Skellig Michael
« on: April 18, 2018, 12:46:16 pm »

The beehive huts and walls on Skellig Michael built by early Christian Monks are a sight to behold. Their forms are sympathetic to the natural rock formations on the island. They sit majestically on Skellig Rock. You canít but sit back and take in the view back to the Kerry mainland and Little Skellig. It is hard to believe that they are over 1500 years old!

Good one. I wonder if it would be possible to shoot the same side of the island without being in the shade?

Nice image.

I also heard there are walruses on that isle that have a greenish milk that is just to die for.
