Garron Plateau I

Location: Garron Plateau, Glenariff, County Antrim, Northern Ireland

Okay I'm quite excited about this picture, I really like it and the area it was taken in. For a year now I have been wanting to visit the Garron Plateau as it's the most extensive area of intact upland Blanket bogs in Northern Ireland, and that kinda thing really gets me excited :p

I finally made it up there on the 12th of July and went for a 13 mile walk around the bog and cliffs. Its a real wilderness area up there with very little visible human impact.

Perhaps this seems a little too compositionally bleak, but for me this was the draw of the area. In winter time this place must be really desolate.
