Portballintrae Sunset

From the very talented camera and eye of Nevin Taggart comes the two recent photos above of a beautiful sunset seen at Portballintrae, County Antrim. Portballintrae is the anglicised form of Port Bhaile an Trá, or 'port of the beach settlement.' It is in one of the most beautiful spots in Northern Ireland and is located very near Dunluce Castle and the Giant's Causeway. It was off the coast at Portballintrae that a team of divers located the greatest find of Spanish Armada treasure ever recovered from a sunken ship. The Spanish ship Girona's gold is now on display in the Ulster Museum in Belfast.
