Slemish Mountain

Slemish Mountain is in Co.Antrim, to the east of the town of Ballymena.  Traditionally, it is said to be the first Irish home of St Patrick, who tended sheep as a slave boy on its slopes.Slemish (Slieve Mish)  is around 1500 feet above the surrounding plain, and is visible for many miles around.

I visited the area on Friday 17th May 2019, and with a few minutes to spare between jobs, I had the time to make a number of different exposures, just to see how the images would turn out.  I used the Fujifilm X-T2.
