This is taken from the Caha mountains above Glengarriff in West Cork, Ireland.  The water you can see is called the Bantry Bay and goes out into the Atlantic ocean, next stop America!  The views here are superb, I love this drive, it takes you over the mountains from Glengarriff to Bonane and so to Kenmare in Co.Kerry.  During the winter the green mountains turn a lovely sepia brown, that’s due to the Ferns and the Grasses.  The forest you see in the photo is an ancient Oak forest, it is a National reservation and there are lovely walk allocated in there, beautiful to do summer or winter.  The Glengarriff river runs through it making for lovely habitats for birds and other wildlife.
