Photos and Mass Debaters
A mass debate on photos ...What could be more edifying? Please allow these good people to continue their exchanges. I will not sit in judgment on their foibles, tsunami. We are all sinners in the equipment department to some extent . I am sympathetic to Weedavie's point of view that the moment may be lost in the very act of the photographer seeking to preserve it: vis the burly cameraman who pushes forward and flashes as the couple murmur "we do". At least we don't video funerals...yet..I have taken a stand against those plastic bladders out of which we are supposed to suck water. But , because of my wonky knees and bad back, I see the purpose of walking poles. We must not discharge babies with bathwater. Let us be discerning. But Bleck is correct. What is essential is invisible to the eye. We murder to dissect. P.S. Speaking of equipment, I will be asking the Trekkers Music Sub Committee to adopt Kirsty MacColl's.. "In these shoes-I Don't Think so" as our anthem. I am sick to the back teeth of "High on the hills is a lonely goat..."PPS tsunami...the plural of e-mail is e-mail...Please....

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry 22 hours ago.
I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey
Barry 22 hours ago.
Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...
