Dry-stone wall under Slemish Mountain. We went for a walk up Slemish this afternoon. I'm afraid I didn't make it to the top - it was just too steep and slippery for me. But the views from even half way up were lovely. The area surrounding Slemish is mainly boggy upland, suitable only for sheep farming and laced with lovely mossy dry-stone walls.

This picture could be from our backyard from Scotland near Aberdeen, where we lived a long time ago.
Serene hills and sheep with their black faces, some horse-chestnut tree
here and there and so green.
Thank you for these photos!
