I received a suggestion for relocation from a local, which I appreciate. "This is about 500M from my home. This is St. Johns R.C. Church in Hilltown, The small mountain behind is known as The Hen Mountain and the Large one is known as Slieve Muck. Nice picture!" However, I think that our discrepancy is based on two issues: 1. the image was taken with a 300mm lens and therefore is taken from further (north) than you might expect, and 2. the convention in GE is to locate the camera point rather than the subject. If the commentator reads this and is satisfied then that is ok. But if this is still not satisfactory then I ask for further contact. While I was only a visitor to the area, I believe I have accurately recorded my photographic position. I hope so. Ian

Dear David,

Thanks for your response. As my photos have reminded you of your special holiday in Ireland, I am very happy.

Christmas blessings and may your 2010 be most fulfilling, David.
