Today we feature Slieve Binnian Summit in winter by Gareth McCormack. Located within the Mourne Mountain range in County Down, this summit rises to 747 metres. It is the third highest mountain in Northern Ireland. Gareth best explains his composition:
"This shot was taken one February after the Mourne Mountains were dusted by snow. To me, the most appealing aspect of the scene was the juxtaposition between warmth and cold. I knew the granite tors on Binnian's summit were particularly effective at reflecting evening light - they glow bright orange in the right conditions. Along with crystal-clear views provided courtesy of the north wind, they make the sub-zero conditions seem positively balmy."
Gareth has certainly captured the variability and vastness of the landscape in this composition. You can browse or buy Gareth McCormacks prints here.
