Pasture Ridge

Far and Near

A wonder of capturing a voyage through photography is the ability to look back and better understand what was experienced. On January 20th I published the following photograph from Healy Pass. The dramatic elements, the waterfall and distant glacially striated mountain, draw away from the distant ridge on the right.

The ridge marks the col used by the pass road: starting from the right follow the ridge down to the col.

Looking toward the heights from Classduff townland. Glacial striations of the Caha Mountains visible in the distance. Adrigole river foreground. Beara Peninsula, County Cork, Republic of Ireland.

Here is a pasture on that ridge, taken from the same road. The road is not visible in the first photograph.

  1. Michael, as you noted, there is evidence of past glacial activity. I taught many years in northeastern Montana, and there was a clear dividing line where past glacial activity had stopped. Farmers living north of the line still devote time to removing rocks from their fields.
