I had completely forgotten that I had submitted a photo to a Mountaineering Ireland competition until I received the email today;

"Seán

Thank you for submitting the attached photo for Mountaineering Ireland’s ‘What’s your view?’ competition.

I’m very pleased to say that this image has been selected as one of four photos to be included in the ‘What’s your view’ piece in the spring issue of the Irish Mountain Log.

We are going to print the four selected photos along with c.50 words from each photographer about what qualities make that view special.

In addition to being impressed by the quality of your photo, we also liked the words you provided to accompany the image. Could you review what’s below and confirm if you’re happy for the words below to be included with your name and photo in the Irish Mountain Log? If you want to adjust the text that’s fine, it’s also OK if you go a bit over the 50 words.

This really is a beautiful shot, well done.

Regards

Helen."


The photo in question is this one;



And the wording that will be printed with it;

“Any view from my tent on a Mournes’ summit would be my favourite. This example from Doan summit, overlooking Silent Valley Reservoir, March 2017. When I get up onto the summits for a night the stresses of life are gone. It is my reset switch and that is what makes the views my favourite.”

That was a little good news for the weekend. I am looking forward to seeing the other three photos also.

Well done mate, nice photo. I'm considering a Doan camp again soon myself and I think your pic just confirms what a great wee spot it is.

Yeah, in the winter time especially, when the ground is frozen. You need to be well off it.
I use a Thermarest Prolite. It's not the deepest most comfortable mat available but it's enough to keep me off the ground and snug and it's only 300 grams.
