Title: Gap of Dunloe

Location: Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry, Ireland

The Gap of Dunloe, hewn two million years ago by giant, slow moving ice. It cuts through the Tomies Mountain, Purple Mountain and Macgillycuddy's Reeks ,It starts at Kate Kearney's Cottage and ends in the Black Valley. While driving through the night before I saw this image. A word of warning "Don't Drive It", it's eight miles long with only a few pullovers and the Jaunting cars (a light horse-drawn cart carring four passengers) have the right of way. The next morning I hiked in a couple of mles from the Black Valley to get this image and while setting up my 4X5 camera I saw a herd of ponies trotting along the road from the Black Valley where they are stabled on there way to work to pull the Jaunting car. The ponies knew the way as no one was leading them. The Gap is well worth the trip in the Jaunting, car or biking or hiking.
