Photographer's Note

Hi there,

I took this one at the bottom of the Lugnaquilla - the highest mountain in Leinster and the 13th highest Irish peak.

Lugnaquilla, from the Irish: Log na Coille meaning "hollow of the wood" is also the highest peak in the Wicklow Mountains in eastern Ireland, and is one of Ireland's fourteen mountains over 3,000 ft, with an elevation of 925 m (3,035 ft). The views, on a clear day, extend east across the Irish Sea to the hills of the Llŷn Peninsula and mountains of Snowdonia in Wales.

Its proximity to the capital, Dublin, ensures that Lugnaquilla is a frequently climbed mountain. The most popular approaches to "Lug", as it is affectionately known, are via Glenmalure and the Glen of Imaal. Lugnaquilla is a bulky mountain, with a large plateau-type summit, bounded on two sides by steep glacial corries (the North and South Prisons).
