From Sally Gap to Lough Dan – Pinhole Obscura Reblog

Pinhole - Round Wood to Lough Dan

One of the wonderful things about this country is that you are never really sure where a small laneway or an open gate can lead you. One of my favourite walks in the Wicklow mountains is the stroll from where I ditch my car on the Sally Gap road and walk downhill towards Lough Dan.

The stroll is very pleasant and a steep enough downward amble most of the way to the Lough. At one point the path changes and you follow to course of the Cloghoge River. The mature river meanders past deer and open bog land before entering Lough Dan. The climb back up the hill is always a bit rough bit well worth the efforts.

All photos where taken with my Zero 4 x 5. The black and white shots are on Tri-X and the colour stuff is Ektar

    I too love the walk, and my aim in 2016 is to get fit enough to walk back without having to stop for a breather. I really like your pinhole photography, great shots, makes the area seem almost unrecognisable.

      I always pretend that I “have to” take a photo and use it as an excuse to stop. I love the walk but find the climb back up difficult and rewarding.
