Photographer's Note

The Hill of Tara was the Coronation place of Irelands pre-Christian kings, and is one of Irelands more famous sites. This was not a hereditary Kingship; the kings either won it in battle or were chosen for it. Although no buildings survive there are a number of large earthworks still remaining on the hill, some are inside an even larger iron age enclosure known as a Hill Fort. In the middle of this enclosure are two linked ring forts, to the East is Cormacs House and to the West is The Royal Seat.

I like this photo for it's natural impressionistic, painterly quality. The photo is unprocessed except for some cropping, levels adjustment in CS, and the removal of a road sign in the lower left corner.
