blooming whin

By Nutters
Another view of the Mourne mountains in Co Down.
The rocky peaked mountain in the background is Slieve Binnion, a favourite for treking up.
Another characteristic of this area which can be seen in the shot is the dry stone walls that surround and define the field boundaries in these mountains.
The walls have been built and expanded on over the years as the farmers clear more land of stones and improve it's fertility making it capable of sustaining cattle rather than sheep.
Have a look at the large version to get a better look if you've time

Cheers,
Trev.
