Hen Mountain is situated in the western Mournes and peaks at approximately 350m above sea level. The three birds, (Hen, Cock and Pigeon rock), is a popular day walk with a total walking distance of around 6 miles.
A few days off meant a trip into the Mournes and the 11km loop to the top of Slieve Binnian. It really is a great little hike with stunning views of the mountains taking in both Ben Crom reservoir and the Blue Lough.
Nothing beats a 6 hour adventure into the Mourne Mountains on a bright winter's day with the Fujifilm X-Pro2. We started with an early meet at Trassey Track and made our way up to Hare's Gap.
Getting out into the Mournes during the winter months can be a challenge given the dramatic reduction in daylight hours. Fortunately an early morning start allowed for a family climb up Doan Mountain.
A hike to the top of Doan Mountain. We took the recommended trek from Ott carpark through to the Mourne wall and then over the softer ground on to Doan, the paths are somewhat limited at times so we were reliant on our directions and the ViewRanger app to get us to the top.
Ever since I visited Barrowdale with Millican, Fujifilm and a great group of Fujifilm X Photographers I have been longing to get back and explore the area properly. It has been almost two years since my last visit and I was excited to show everyone the natural glory of the Lakeland parks.

One cold December morning I headed over to Millbank Studios to capture the album cover the latest Malojian album entitled “Southlands”. Millbank offered an amazing backdrop for the cover with little interference.
