A little silhouetto of a man
P.S. anyone else have the thunder and lightning very very bigtime frightening, that we had today in the Mournes?
It came in over Bearnagh like the windtrail of a thousand demons, black fingers clawing at the innocent air - from blazing sunshine to virtual blackout in a second.
It blitzkrieged Bearnagh and then camped out on Donard for more than an hour, to some of the most mighty thunder explosions north of Vesuvius.
Beneath, the sea was the bluest you'd ever seen; above, the sky the blackest.
Coming off Slievenagarragh, I kept one eye on it North, as I fled the mountain; it strafed and bombed Donard, gathered itself, barely diminished and edged into the midpace valley and towards Dundrum Bay - yet in its wake, a bigger, even more dangerous sibling. So I am coming off Slievenagarragh like a hare - and so pleased that I hate walking poles - with hellfire on one heel and brimstone on the other and sheet lightning popping off no further than my fingertips.
Rain and hail and soaked to my immortal (it seems) soul. And to the Bloody Bridge car park, to dry out like paper in the .......... blazing sunshine. Again.

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry 2 days 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 2 days 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...
