Mullagh More Winter Walk

Sunshine, showers and light winds, that is the perfect winter day in Ireland. On days like this there is nothing better than pack up the camera and head for the hills and that’s exactly what I did on this crisp January afternoon. With no particular plans I started the ascend to Mullagh More. In the end I didn’t make it to the summit because not surprisingly I got sidetracked a number of times and ended up in a rarely visited part of the National Park.

Burren National Park

A lone ash tree a bit off the main Mullagh More track became my first model for the day.

Definitely off the beaten track: The western side of Mullagh More.

Photographic note: All images were made with a Sony 7R II & 24-70mm/2.8 lens (except image number 3 which was made with a 70-300mm lens) on a tripod. A polarizer was used for some images.
