Mweelrea Video
After years of thinking about it I have finally put together my first "mountain video" and uploaded it onto YouTube. Briefly, I was due a day off, and could see that the forecasted anti-cyclone was likely to generate perfect conditions down the West. So I headed to Cnoc Maol Reidh at first light on Friday and ascended the horseshoe from Delphi. It was heavenly, although the snow on the high ridges made Lugmore quite terrifying. The most difficult thing about videoing yourself is having to organise and point the camcorder, then walk into the picture, then run back again. What a farce! When I finally got to the Lugmore ridge I kept thinking of Bleck Cra's comment about spying his own death up there! I sure know what he means. Anyway I made it back down, and having recovered from the trauma, began editing....I'm afraid I couldn't quite strike the balance between factual reporting and over the top lyricism, so I ended up with the Love Theme from Spartacus and a whole load of mad camera swivelling !! I was very tempted to give full Irish Grid reference points of each video shot to allow "anoraks" like myself to wallow in the detail but decided to make things easy for the general viewer on this first occasion by leaving them out. I hope some of you will find the finished product tolerable. Try searching Mweelrea or CapVertigo on YouTube. I'm not sure if Simon permits links, but if he does, it'll be at http://www.youtube.com/user/CapVertigo?feature=mhw4
