Interesting shot of the mountain. Your views are always of those "plots" of green below, but to see the terrain up close like this, it looks so very different than what you think a mountain there will look like. I know you've mentioned it before, but what is the make up of the mountain, specifically the dark brown and grey in the photo?Are you Waldo in this post? :) I thought I might have seen Jess in mountain photo, but I can't be certain.
Nope, the dog is in the bottom right above the X you see on the ground made by snow. I was looking for her for a good while myself. It's the heather in winter that's causing her to blend.It's hard to get the mountain with a good photo while on it. It's all curves you see. There's a fault line below the dog going N-S that has a percentage of gold in it. But look up Slievenamon in Celtic mythology. She VERY important. I took the selfie as I had contacts in. I just got a new pack after ages and was amused by my no-glasses-look. Into the car window, and did you note I flipped the image. You can read Nikon, you shouldn't you know :-).
That's where I thought I was seeing her, but as, like Ed, when I enlarge it to see, I lost the clarity and thought the black and white was just the coloration of the scenery. :). No, I didn't make the connection with the Nikon.
Frankly I'm pretty darn amazed anyone could make her out at all. As I said I really had to scan to find her and I had the advantage of her drawing my eye with her flicker of movement.
Although I stared at Jess for awhile, I couldn't identify her as man or animal and thought I was possibly looking at a rock. I just don't have good enough resolution for picking out her among the heather. I also didn't realize that you had flipped your self portrait around so that I could reak Nikon. Strike two on this round! I really like those treeless knobs that you have in spades in your country. I can't think of a single place that looks similar in our country.
The nearest place to you would be the Appalachia extention that swings up into Maine and New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. We are the geological connection. You know I just found the flip action, and all I thought it would do is reverse not mirror the flip. Good to know though.
I found her, even before looking at the comments! Of course I have practice searching for dogs trying to blend into the scenery. ;)You look fairly bundled up - against all that wind y'all have been getting, I presume.
I was there, and she was hunting, and it took me ages to see her. But when I did I thought of that Waldo comment you made ages ago.Three seasons yesterday on the mountain. It was real cold mid way up but warmer on the heights. Because it's so near the Atlantic, and independent you feel moving into different temp zones.
