Partry Mountains, Mayo

I took a "shortcut" through the mountains, behind Toormakeady, poor me. These pictures do not do credit to the area, somewhere I have to revisit. The "shortcut" was not that quick.
Mountain stream. A view over Toormakeady overlooking Lough Conn. A view south to north Connemara county Galway and the Maumturk mountains. Another mountain stream. You'll notice the brown stained stones, due to the peat content, also the reason that the water looks dark. This is what the bear saw when he went over the mountain, the other side, again looking south.

maybe thats why the vikings visited so often in the past ;)

thanks madam, though it was hard not to get a half decent shot with the scenery.
