View from the foot of Caher Mountain towards the mountain range near Kells

I spent the last two days near the Macgillycuddy Mountains, even walked up a bit. The weather was just fantastic, very clear and wonderful light. The first image shows Carrauntoohil, the highest mountain in Ireland, I could even see the cross full of ice and some climbers having a rest under the cross.
Some Warning: Do not go there if you dont have alpine climbing
equipment and experience!
I walked up from Lough Acoose and found some old buildings, some wild goats and of course sheep.
Lough Acoose was only half frozen on Sunday, a good opportunity to take pictures with the snow covered mountains reflecting in the water.
The last two photos were taken at Lake Caragh, a famous
fishing spot, but for the moment the boats are resting.
