Today we feature an image of 19th Century Classiebawn Castle in Co. Sligo by Stephen Wallace. Located on the Mullaghmore Peninsula, the land was once owned by the Ó Conchobhair Sligigh (O'Connor Sligo) clan, descendants of Brian Luighnech Ua Conchobhair. Ben Bulben serves as an impressive backdrop to the castle in the distance.
This is actually a pretty technical shot to capture as it requires a telephoto lens with a long focal length to create the compression effect (illusion of closeness) as seen between Classiebawn & Ben Bulben!
