Slemish Mountain where legend has it that Saint Patrick worked as a slave herding livestock. It is only 1500 feet high but it is a volcanic plug with a very distinctive shape that sits above the Antrim plateau.

Thank you very much Amanda. This is hdr and I debated upping the contrast but on this occasion I quite liked the softness - I thought it suited the legend and history - but I might be wrong! Viv

Another beautiful shot of your surrounds Viv....I love the soft light too, and the patchwork of greens.....I have noticed that on all the paddocks there seems to be little or no livestock?.....lovely scene.....SmileAlan

The green, green grass - very Irish (reminds me of England, too). Try cropping the bottom where that left stone wall begins (to get rid of that ugly patch of bitumen) and about 1 cm from the sky - make it more panoramic. For Alan - sigh! - there ain't no paddocks in Europe - there are FIELDS!!!! Wink Jan
