F -Stop!
Yes Davie - less wee and much bigger. The whole picture and none of it on celluloid. Simon - all the heartfeeling and such, is a good thing but sadly it pales against true cynicism. Davie - you and I will go and get blocked one night and eat the small picture-takers enroute and if we can be bothered, spit them out. Occasionally someone on purpose takes a small cheap, unaffected pic that transports us into the world we love: ragged crags, precipitous drops, windy ridges and wild carpets of bees and heather. Occasionally Ö. ? Sure nearly never, because most of us including mutt-head here are trying to win photo-awards and so we concoct something: something truly awful. Shall we? Shall we nonsense. Itís the old story: tell a joke if youíre a comedian - and so Ö.. take a picture if youíre a photographer. Your line ďEquipment makes enemies of usĒ is the whole heap. Walking poles Ö? Heaven help our wit. The hill is this: life and death, width and depth, before and after, pain and pleasure, today and tomorrow. Címon Mr would-be Photographer - click that! He canít of course, because itís already gone. The fact of the matter is itís to do with a moment - a moment where life, like an elastic band is stretched, until it sings. You canít repeat it, you canít write it, you canít hum it in the bath - and sure as pigs are pink ye certainly cannae photograph it! Now this is not to say donít try - and mountainviews seems to prick the least of us into excellence. And so Davie - sometimes it works out; and Simon - sometimes it doesnít. But do you know who decides this? Not you, not him and not me.

Cupidstown Hill: Enhance this with a visit to Oughterard
Bunsen7 a day ago.
Yes, perhaps this is not a very noteworthy hill. Cupidstown and Saggart Hill represent largely forest topped outliers of the Dublin/Wicklow range split from higher summits to the East by the N81. ...

Summit Summary
Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 a week ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...

Fergal Meath a week ago.
Low lying cloud/mist/fog discouraged me from putting the effort into going up Nephin today. On the way home I parked at the start of the Croaghmoyle service road and followed it past a wind turbin...
