Too true, yea the little bliters were out in the evening for sure but had the deet plastered on and also had a head net if they had got crazy bad.  Hammock (DD Frontline) has the net built in so it was all good in it, great job.

I had always wanted to try a sunrise shoot around the Devils Coachroad area in the Mournes with the idea of the rising sun lighting up Cove, Beg and Slieve Lamagan to my right.
In late January i decided to give it a go, snow had fallen in the couple of day previous and the forecast for the morning was any snow/rain clearing up from 6am and broken cloud hopefully giving me a chance of a nice sunrise. I was walking from before 6am up the Trassey Track to Hares Gap and then along the Brandy Pad to the Devils Coachroad. It started to snow shortly after i started to walk and from Hares Gap i was pushing my way through up to 1ft of snow with my head down in a blizzard! So much for the forecast. When i got light there was definately no sign of a sunrise though the views were still spectacular.

WOW! Beautiful photos, a reward for braving the conditions!

I'm sure you had your doubts when climbing up in the dark and cloud.  What a result.  Lovely captures, thanks for sharing.

Class photos!

Thanks for the comments guys. It was awesome when i got up there and i was treated to some nice light but it was tough too.

Was in two mind to go camping as my Sciatica was playing up.  When I got home from work the choice was made, the hammock & tarp etc which had been  ordered on Thursday night had arrived, happy days!!
First time in a hammock and I have to say that it was extremely comfortable and relatively easy to setup. Great night was had and weather was 100%.
