Photographer's Note

Photo was taken at the bottom of Croach Patrick Moutain which you can see in the right corner.
Rising to 2510 feet (765 meters) near the town of Westport in County Mayo, the quartzite peak of Croach Patrick was a pagan sacred place long before the arrival of Christianity.
Currently it is estimated that nearly one million pilgrims climb to the summit each year. In the Irish Christian tradition the ascent is undertaken as an act of penance for wrongdoing, and many of the pilgrims climb barefooted or even on their knees.
Mt. Croach Patrick was - and still is - a place to experience and give thanks for the exquisite beauty of life.

For some more information I invite you to see my other shot from this beautiful place: http://www.trekearth.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=1072950
