This panorama photograph of Rosses Point village was taken from Coney Island late on a March evening in 2010. It is a panorama photograph whereby 8 individual photos were stitched together to from a single image.

The seaside village of Rosses Point lies under Benbulben on the Rosses peninsula to the north of Sligo town. It boasts one Sligo's Blue Flag beaches and is home to both the Sligo Yacht Club and County Sligo Golf Club, which hosts the West of Ireland Golf Championship every year.

The village faces out across Oyster and Coney Islands in Sligo bay towards Maebh's Cairn on Knocknarea. The mouth of the bay is guarded by the iconic 'Metal Man'.  The 12ft high 7 1⁄2 ton cast iron Metal Man was placed on Perch Rock in 1822 and is 'dressed' in the uniform of a 19th century petty officer. It was originally intended to be placed atop the 1819 Blackrock daybeacon but was relocated when a decision was made to convert that beacon to the current day Blackrock Lighthouse.

The Metal Man's outstretched arm points to signal the safe side of navigation. When his light is lined up with the light on Oyster Island lighthouse you get what is called the "leading lights" which mark the safe passage for shipping heading into the Sligo Channel. The figure, commissioned by the widow of a ship captain who wrecked nearby, was designed by the sculptor John Kirk. Another figure cast from the same mould stands on a daybeacon at Tramore, Co. Waterford.

Rosses Point is also famous for having been the subject of both paintings and poems by the Yeats brothers, William and Jack, who regularly holidayed there as children at Elsinore Lodge, the home of their cousin Henry Middleton.
