    Wait a second. If that's "the mountain", what's the winter sport you say you're doing?

  • Well they are kind of small'ish mountains down here mostly, but there was snow on the top of that one when I was on it. 180 degrees around from the sheep though there was the snow on the back of the mountain where I am skiing visible:

    Here's another one for you:
    Lake Wakitipu in the front, Queenstown off camera to the left.....

    Posting photos of my home country is mean-- reminds me how much I miss mountains. I just realise I've never been up to the remarkables -- lovely photo.




  • In that case then here is a picture of The Remarkables from yesterday:

    Now I didn't run there, but there was a race last week consisting of skiing down the section of the mountain you can see in the middle there, then a cycle down the dirt track access road to the shore of Lake Wakitipu, then a canoe across the lake, then a run from the centre of Queenstown up to the bottom of the Coronet Peak access road where they again hopped on bikes to ride up to the base of the mountain that I took that picture from.

  • Have to say i love this thread,i kept telling myself for months that i would post a few pics,so this morning i went off with the young fella and took a few pics from the scenery that kept me going during my LSR on Wednesday.

    Pic 1 is from Ballygunner looking down at the Island where waterford castle is.
    Chimney from Louiseanna Pacific in the backgroung

    Pic 2 is view of the sandhills in Tramore from top of hill just off dunmore road

    Pic 3 i took just next to Clorneaghs ( not sure of spelling )

    Pic 4 i just turned around from taking pic 3.

    Pic 5 is view of tramore from clse to airport




  • another few ...

    2 is a nice friendly bull !

    3 is my son befriending a dog while i was taking a pic of the bull
    ( our own dog was not happy upon our return as she was smelling him for a good 10 mins,i think she felt betrayed )

    4 is passing of cows just as we drove home.




  • Nice Sosa. My favourite is actually the 4th one with the sign-posts. I love running down country roads, spotting a sign-post, and on a whim changing direction and heading somewhere new.




  • I'm moving to Antigua at the start of October. First thing on my list is to attempt my first run in a long time. I'll take some pics to jealous you all out of it!




  • mine to Krusty...i have saved it as my desktop background




  • here's our local club running in doneraile park last winterdoneraile%20...




  • That's a picture of Caragh Lake in Kerry. One loop is 15 very hilly miles, and it's by far and away my favourite route.

    While I don't do the entire loop more than once or twice a week, on other days I just run x miles along the lake and turn around at some stage. I still can't get enough of the scenery, even though I know each meter by heart by now.

    you are one very lucky person :)




  • View looking back down Cushbawn hill trail that I had just run up slowly.

  • ^I think it might be a permissions problem with how your Facebook is setup, but I'm not an expert on photos linked from there.




  • I did get out for a run today. Roads around here are still far too covered in snow and ice to risk going out on, so I borrowed a car someone had left in the driveway and made my way to somewhere safer to go for a run:

    Well I thought it was going to be safer, but it seems that a lot of people had had the same idea already and the snow was so compacted down on the grass that it was more dangerous there than running down the middle of the roads.

  • Tried to both run and cycle this :failed on both accounts :
    will look familar to the Gaelforce participants.

    Snowy Lugnacoille. The crystal clear conditions made the mountain appear a lot nearer than it actually is.

    View from trail above Carlingford....

    Hi there. Just saw this. Wondering if you have any suggestions for a trail around the hills in Carlingford. Was thinking of tackling Barnavave from the town centre but not sure how far up I'd get!
