Ballycroy National Park is Ireland's most recent national park, and encompasses a vast, uninhabited wilderness area around the Nephin Beg mountains. The park boundaries also include a small stretch of coastline, near where this shot was taken. The thick covering of lichen that cloaks the foreground rocks is testament to the purity of the Atlantic air, while the pyramid on the skyline is Slievemore mountain on Achill Island.
