Low November sun shows the summit, taken from the south.

The road from Killarney to Kenmare goes past the three main ridges of the Iveragh peninsula, from north to south: the Reeks, the Dunkerrons and the Mangertons. This picture is taken from Moll's Gap, a pass over the Mangertons and shows Mothaillín the east end of the Dunkerrons, in front of the snow-covered Reeks.
