Editor's Choice: Photo of the Day

Photographer: Ronan McLaughlin

Today we feature an incredible image of a humpback whale off the coast of Cork by Ronan McLaughlin. Fastnet Lighthouse can be seen in the background. It was the last sight of Ireland for many Irish emigrants crossing the Atlantic ocean to America. To capture a humpback whale at this location in such beautiful light is a great feat of photography. Ronan comments:

"Captured here is two of West Cork's most prestigious icons. Humpback whale HBIRL6 'Loopy' first discovered off Loop Head in 1994.

In the distance is the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse."
