A Gerry McVeigh Film
by CaptainVertigo  12 Apr 2015
Walking in Donegal - Poisoned Glen & Slieve Snaght

This is another top rank piece of work by one of our most experienced film makers. Gerry sets off for the Poisoned Glen at dusk before camping overnight . The opening shots set the scene in the fabulous Derryveaghs. In the morning we see Gerry progressing towards Crockfadda East Top. He highlights the deer fence. I think it's good to have close ups of the kind of everyday stuff we encounter on the hills. Bits of gritty realism simply bring the awesome scenery shots into better focus. Moments later we see the deer moving about. I can only guess at the work involved in all of this. Getting good shots takes concentration, time and patience.
In the background, really relaxing and rather apt music by Ben Rector:
There are way too many love songs
And I think they've got it all wrong
Cause life is not the mountain tops
It's the walking in between
And I like you walking next to me
On to Crockfadda, and then great views of the Poisoned Glen. The rich browns and light stone greys typical of the area are much in evidence on the way to Lough Atirrve, Lough Maumbeg, Lough Maam, and on to lough Slievesnaght. Although the day becomes increasingly overcast by the time Gerry reaches Slieve Snaght, this doesn't detract from the "feel" of the work. The colours, apart from the sky, remain vivid. Distinctive Errigal appears often in the background as a point of reference. The sense of a great wilderness is fully conveyed. Tell your friends!
