I've been meaning to get some sunrise photos here at the Mussenden Temple on Downhill beach for a good while. However, I needed to be sure it'd be dry weather so it wouldn't be a complete waste of a 3 hour round trip! The forecast was good, so I decided to head up with my camera and my bike so I could make use of the sun for a cycle along the north coast afterwards.

I used to holiday near here as a child and my granddad is from nearby so it has a bit of sentiment to it too.

Mussenden Temple, perched dramatically on 120ft cliff top, was built in 1785 and forms part of the estate of Frederick Augustus Hervey, Bishop of Derry and Earl of Bristol (or the Earl Bishop). The temple was built as a summer library and its architecture was inspired by the Temple of Vesta in Tivoli, near Rome. It is dedicated to the memory of Hervey's cousin Frideswide Mussenden.

Super lighting and cool cloud formation. Wet sand is the photographer's friend!

This is superb reflection with wonderful colour. It was well worth the journey and My parents used to take me here in my childhood on the weekends and I used to take my children there. Grin
