Spent a very pleasant afternoon on the southern side of the Mourne Mountains. The planned pictures didn't materialise as they needed overcast conditions. Just as I arrived the sky cleared and the afternoon was delightfully sunny. Change of plan - I spent a while exploring around a small abandoned granite quarry and then round an outcrop of rocks.
Rocks and Crocknafeola Wood
Lesson learned - check all 4 corners of the frame. The picture above has a cowpat in the bottom right corner. While it's not too noticeable in this size of picture, my eye cannot miss it when viewed full-screen. My excuse is that I was trying to get a composition that hid an untidy small farm and its outbuildings (together with discarded tractors and other assorted farm machinery) behind the foreground rocks.
If I had spotted it I would have tried a new composition - I wasn't going to move it! Oh the joys of landscape photography.
