Our featured photo today is a view across Lough Leane in County Kerry by the talented Mike Brown. Rugged snow-capped peaks are visible across the water. This whole area forms part of Killarney National Park, the first national park established in 1932 when the Muckross Estate and Gardens went into state ownership. Killarney is known for its lakes, Lough Leane being the largest of the three at approximately 19 square kilometres in size.
It is the only location in Ireland with a native red deer population. Interestingly red deer have existed here as long as 10,500 years ago.
This print is available from €70. You can browse or buy Mike's prints here.
