There are only a few things that actually improve during wet weather on the hills. And one of them is this waterfall seen here during a rainy spell one November. The water falls around 120m at the head of the Clonee valley from a small lake at Cummeenaloughaun. The white foaming water on the black unvegetated rock makes this a particularly striking display. The green fields below are part of the Gleninchiquin park. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/441/comment/2549/
