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.

Lackakeely: An easy bag after Mweelrea
magnumpig 10 hours ago.
Mweelrea is a sweaty old climb (for me anyways) and if, like me, you feel that climbing it deserves bagging more than one peak, you should visit Lackaleely. Basically it's a small rise overlooking...

As mentioned by Bunsen7, the entrance to the windfarm is the best way to access this hill. Note that there are signs saying no unauthorized access but isn't that always the way. I did come across ...

No excuse not to come over here for a peek if you are at Truskmore, so that's what we did and it's worth it for the extra view.

Dalkey Island: Stepping off the mainland

Every visit to an Island is such a unique experience. There is something magical about stepping off the mainland and being, even for a few hours on another Island. When thinking about visiting an ...
