First Hill Walk Of The Year

Time to shake off the excesses of Christmas and the New Year, and get back into the hills.  I headed out for the first hill walk of the year today, breaking myself in gently with a trip up one of my local 100, Mullaghdoo in the Sperrin Mountains.  It was a nice crisp day to be out, and the short days meant it was easy to time it to get the sunset too.  Nice one to start the year.  I haven’t had time to look through all the photos yet, but I did a quick processing job on three of them anyway.

    1. Thanks Jessica. It was a really nice walk all round, but the light really did hit a peak for about 10 minutes or so round the time of that shot. Progress was slow for that spell as I concentrated on the photos 🙂
