Purple Mountain County Kerry – Project 52 #43

Back on the road again following Mayo GAA brought us to Killarney for the first league match of 2015. We arrived in Killarney around lunchtime on Saturday, which gave me time to get a few sites of interest in. We headed out to Muckross House in the famous Killarney National Park, about 3 miles outside Killarney. Here’s a view of a snow capped Purple Mountain. It was only when I looked up the map that I found out the name of the mountain.

Of course I had left my polarizing filters at home as I was not expecting to be shooting landscapes! I spot metered off the snow which resulted in the foreground being slightly under exposed. I can always fix it in photoshop, but I think its fine.
