The Story Behind The Photo: Binnian Sunrise

This entry is part 1 of 19 in the series The Story Behind The Photo

The first photo in our series ‘The Story Behind The Photo’ comes from John Surginor and is titled ‘Binnian Sunrise’.

This fantastic photo was taken on Slieve Binnian in the Mourne Mountains in July of this year. It was taken during a ‘summit camp’ when 16 members of the ‘NI-Wild’ community camped overnight on Slieve Binnian. The photo captures the scene at daybreak as one of the group stands watching the sunrise as clouds roll over the surrounding landscape. is Northern Ireland’s Outdoor Community and features an excellent forum dedicated to all things outdoors.
