whilst no-where near the tallest range in ireland, the mourne mountains are amongst the most characteristic. this is slieve binnian, and the fields around it have been reclaimed by local farmers and cleared of huge granite rocks and boulders.
these rocks have then been used to construct walls around the fields above the coastal village of annalong in county down, northern ireland.

Good evening Brian,
Beautiful countryside landscape, with splendid colors. I love the stone wall which is an interesting foreground.

Great to see another photo of this beautiful area. Great use of the wide angle with wonderful depth of field, and perfect coloration to the sky and the fields. The rock walls are wonderful, and of course they represent thousands of hours of work. I remember seeing similar walls made from the field stones in rural Mexico of all places. Needless to say the scene was not as green as this one! Beautifully framed and a real eye-catcher! Warm regards,

These walls are such an intrinsic part of the landscape of Ireland and Northern Ireland. I love them, their textures and colours are amazing, especially in sunny weather. The green pastures are such an icon of your country and the icing on the cake is this beautiful mountain range. Great shot, thanks for sharing.
Have a good day...good result against Russia!

Vraiment des couleurs magnifiques, j'aime les rochers sur l'avant plan, la perspective du mur de pierres qui mčne le regard vers les collines
un paysage qui fait penser a l'Irlande sous un trčs beau jour ensoleillé

A very nice POV on the Mournes. I love how the stones walls in the foreground and on the left add depth to the photo. Very good colours and perfect sky for photography.

Fantastic composition with a great use of the landschapelines. The rocks at the fg increase the depth and frame the peculiar hill at the bg in a wonderful way. Lovely sky also.

Hello Brian, a great way of showing the extraordinary mason's work of old times when they were using just their hands and their mind to build natural fences.One more amazing composition with great sharpness, depth, perspective, very panoramic and eye catching, you can almost feel the fresh clean air on your face and on your hair!The Irish deep green of the country in contrast with the winter clear blue sky it is always very appealing to my eyes!
