That last photo is beautiful scroggin. Mist and fog make for some really atmospheric shots don't they? Stunning. The reflections in the water are lovely.
You can have too much of that blue sky and sunshine malarkey....
I got a similar shot last year (October 2nd) on that S.E.Mor outing, Joyce. It was an astonishingly beautiful day, with a touch of frost, and the earlier mist en route had all cleared. One of the best days on a hill I've ever had
You gain height so quickly through the woodland, and you start getting the views early on.
I think everyone takes a pic at around that point. There's a little spur which is really well worn - it's a great viewpoint. There was a couple there just taking photos when I was on the way down last Sunday. The Mamores are a great set of hills - remote, steep and tough a lot of the time, but highly rewarding.
Hills might look a bit different this weekend - lots of snow coming in on both days. Sunday's looking better to walk though.
