Photographer's Note

As a continuation to my pic 208, I am posting another scan showing the view on Clew Bay, which one can see from the top of Croagh Patrick.
It's the best example in Ireland of submerged drumlins.
Drumlins date back to the Ice Age and are little hills, now islands that were formed during the moving of the glaciers.
Tradition pretends there are 365 islands in the bay, one for each day of the year !
Well, the picture was not actually taken from the top of Croagh Patrick, only from an altitude of 59 metres. We still had 700m to climb before reaching the top !

In WS you can see the place from which I took the photo near St Patrick's statue. You can recognise the blooming yellow gorse around.
However, the WS was taken at high tide, whereas my picture was taken at low tide.
