On the morning of my first visit despite the initial clear morning air when I reached the the uplands a vial of mist covered the mountains giving very poor visibility and light. Determined to capture the beauty of the area I visited again a week later at dawn. The stillness and loneliness of the mountains was awe inspiring. The only sound was the cry of birds or prey. As the sun came up the mountains revealed their splendor and the wait was rewarded with the beautiful colours of forest and fauna. Some mist still hung in the air giving a slight mystic feeling. Having hiked up to the top of one of the peaks beside Lough Dan, camera on tripod the shutter was released to capture the sacred beauty of this ancient landscape.
