The Great Gully (Press L...it is much better)

The great gully on the Benleagh cliff's overlooking the Fraughn Rock Glen County Wicklow. I had previously seen a similar shot to this taken by a climber (Nick Simons) and wanted to have a go at the scene myself.

 

This was an exposed shooting position both in terms of height and also weather and I was being buffetted by sporadic hail and snow showers whilst on the cliffs (the upper parts of Lugnaquillia had snow settling above this point).

 

To me this shot sums up what is great about the wilder more elevated parts of Wicklow and the opportunities they offer to have small adventures ;-)
