Editor's Choice: Photo of the Day

Photographer: Philip Mulhall

Today we feature an exceptional image of sunrise over Poolbeg Lighthouse by Philip Mulhall. Located in Dublin Bay, it was built in 1768 and reportedly was the first lighthouse in the world to run on candle power. This shot would have taken much planning by Philip in order to capture the sun as it rises precisely behind the lighthouse.
