Addicted to You - Glanteenassig
I've been meaning to take a look at the rossbeighed mountain movies on YouTube seeing them mentioned by simon3. Lo and behold it transpires that rossbeigh has done some work on Glanteenassig which is a fabulous beauty spot only recently discovered by me. I think he's done a lovely job. I particularly like some of the slow motion sequences, and the cloud work. Now I hope that you stick at this because I've seen your Reeks Ridge Vid and there's a lot of breaths of fresh air there, and the future is going to be all about editing. I know you'll be annoyed at me for this, but I wanted a bit of spice added to Glanteenassig so I took the liberty of switching off your (perfectly acceptable) soundtrack and playing Avicii "Addicted to You" in parallel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qc9c12q3mrc) . It was a case of wanting the soundtrack to express my powerful reaction to the place, and your images, rather than simply paraphrasing the image content in sound. Sorry for being a patronising old git: it comes with age. Two things that I didn't like. The lettering on the opening credits is straight out of 1965: a bit psychedelic. There were shots of mountains here and there where the camera lingered on the lake, or the trees, but never showed the mountaintop and sky above. That made me feel a bit hemmed in, and I knew that I was missing something. But these are minor matters. It is a job well done.

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...
