This Irish coastal landscape photograph features one of the Blasket Islands or Na Blascaodaí in Irish. The Blasket Islands are a group of islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, close to the coast of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland.

This photograph of one of the Blasket Islands in Dingle was taken from a higher elevation on Sybil Head. This atmospheric scene immediately caught the eye because of the mystical quality of the sky around the island. Hence the title “Mystical”. Heavy rain started to engulf the island, but the sun still managed to peek through and light the island.
