Photographer's Note

Mount Errigal has got to be one of the most striking mountains I've ever seen. It's not very tall--less than 2,500 feet. Even though it looks like a volcano, there's nothing volcanic about it. But something about it is just magical and haunting. Perhaps it's that it rises in some of the most enchanting countryside in all of Ireland: the region of Gweedore in Donegal. At its foot is the eerie ruined church of Dunlewy and the ominously named Poisoned Glen. And just north of it, on the road to Letterkenny, is some of the most barren and wild countryside I've ever passed through.

I was lucky to catch the tail end of this rainbow--the only one we saw in Ireland--at this overlook on the Clady River just outside Gweedore. What a beautiful spot.

I'm on a bit of an Ireland kick right now, so please bear with me. :)
