I've had the pleasure of climbing Mount Errigal for a sponsored charity event and it was an amazing experience. From the top of the mountain you can see a lot of little lakes and greenery everywhere. You can even see in the middle of the mountain at the peak, the tracks of the paths used by hikers.
This photo's composition and colors are stunningly beautiful! I love the contrast of great and small.
As a high school student with a passion for photography I always turn to National Geographic for inspiration, and it never fails me!

It kind of looks like the bushes are floating in the sky. Ireland is so beautiful, I hope I get to go there some day. Thank you for the lovely photo Derek.
Mount Errigal, or simply Errigal is a 751-metre mountain near Gweedore in County Donegal, Republic of Ireland. It is the tallest peak of the Derryveagh Mountains, the tallest peak in County Donegal, and the 76th tallest peak in Ireland.
A beautiful picture of an incredible countryside. However it is not in Ireland. It is in another country with a different government that happens to be on the same island with Eire. It is important that an organization with Geographic in it's name understand the political georgraphic boundaries of the world. No matter how much Vermount wants to be New Hampshire, it cannot be so.
Cool photo!!!!! You can see the reflection of the mountain in the water. Looking at the trees, it looks like it is fall.
This photo is a amazing because you got the reflection of the mountain.And the way you the people on the mountain simply amazing
this is a cool photo and i like that how you took the photo when the house on the side.Also the mountain is in the middle.
This photo is really cool. I like how the water is really clear that you can see the mountains reflection.
This picture is really cool! I really like the reflection, it's so clear! Is that smoke coming out of the top, or just a cloud?
I love this photo. I love how the mountains reflections in the water and the little trees are out of the water. this is a VERY GOOD PHOTO.
Wow is it naturally Flooded or did it just flood that once. Because wouldn't it kill the tree saplings.
This photo is really awesome!! and FANTASTIC!!! really good shot from the trees to the mountains are really cool!.
This is a really awesome picture the reflection looks like a crater. It actually looks like a whole chunk of earth torn out.
A very nice photo, my favorite part of the photo is that the mountain and house are reflected by the lake and how the whole scene is nice and tranquil.
This is really cool. I love the way the water is making the mountain look like it is looking in a mirror. Are the white spots snow if so then how is it surviving the hot blazing sun. Nice photo.
The mountain looks BEAUTIFUL! Did the trees really grow in the middle of the Dunlewey Lough or is the water just high?AMAZING photo!
COOL. I like how you can see the reflection of the mountain and the trees so clear in the water. NICE
This is a fantastic photo I like the how the water is sort of shallow and how that there are two trees in the water.This is such a good photo.
What a peaceful lake! Perfect place to relax. The people living on the shore of the lake and foot of the mountain are very lucky.
@Martin Lorberg Donegal is in the north of Ireland, but not the North! Hope that clears things up!

@Bodell Cougars Probably on a boat.
@matthew s. I think those are meant to grow in water and that the lake hasn't flooded.
@matthew s. I dont think so.
@delbert knightman Are you talking about the bushes in the water.
@Aidan Nunook Same here.
