Cloud Inversion over Musheramore

There can be few more spectacular sights whilst walking in the mountains than that of a cloud inversion. The experience of walking above a covering of cloud, the landscape below hidden and only the tops of the surrounding hills rising like islands above the cloud, is an unforgettable one.

Kieran Fitzgerald was lucky enough to witness a cloud inversion whilst walking on Mount Clara in the Derrynasaggart Mountains, County Cork.

Check out these couple of pictures from Kieran of the cloud inversion in which Musherabeg and Musheramore can be seen in the background.
