Photographer's Note

Every stream around this area looks like flowing Guinness beer. This is due to the fact that surrounding mountains are covered with peat and this area was used to harvest peat, used mainly for heating.

From Wikipedia:
Lough Tay is a small but scenic lake set in the Wicklow Mountains in County Wicklow, Ireland. It lies between the mountains of Djouce and Luggala, and is most easily viewed from above, from the R759 or the Wicklow Way as it descends past the JB Malone memorial. It is fed by the Cloghoge River, which then drains into Lough Dan to the south. The northern coastline forms part of an estate belonging to the Guinness family; it is edged with a beach of startlingly white sand, imported by the landowners.[2]
