Mountain of the Witch

The Milky Way above Sliabh na Caillighe (Mountain of the Witch). A 40-km away from the Newgarange World Heritage Site this ancient hill might be an older complex (between 3500-3300 BC). As noted by the photographer "The main chamber has an entrance aligned with the rising equinox sun (similar to Newgrange), which illuminates a large stone at the back of the chamber that has carvings of the sun on it. The clouds in the image are in fact an oncoming snow blizzard." Declan McCormack
