Spindrift at Hook Head, Doornoge Point, Hook Peninsula, County Wexford, Ireland


Photograph by John Colfer

Doornoge Point is located close to Hook Lighthouse and is on the Western side of the Hook Peninsula where it is exposed to the full might of the North Atlantic Ocean. These are rugged rocks in the foreground and they contain interesting fossils of ancient fauna and flora from millenniums of the past.

Look at the spindrift, or spray in this photograph, and observe the sand and gravel being thrown 50 to 60 feet into the air by the force of the sea belting onto the shore.
