Beyond a shadow of a doubt

The French writer Maupassant used to say he had lunch in the Eiffel Tower every day because it was the only place in Paris that he couldn't see the thing. A similar view might be taken of Foardal, which as a summit, is as uninspiring as they go - a broad, heathery mound that is only just discernible. On the other hand, the views from Foardal are enough to inspire any literary mind, so it's more than worth the trip. As we descended in the evening light I happened to notice our 3 shadows following the curve of the hill... Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/777/comment/19803/
