Artist's Description

Took this shot at 9.19am on Sunday 5/12/2010 with Slemish Mountain in the background. Slemish is near to the town of Ballymena, Co. Antrim, N.Ireland and is where St. Patrick was first put to work as a shepherd.

According to legend, following his capture and being brought as a slave to Ireland, Patrick worked as a shepherd at Slemish Mountain for about six years, from ages 16 through 22, for a man named Milchu (or Miluic).
Slemish Mountain is open year-round, and on Saint Patrick’s Day (17th March) large crowds hike to the top of the mountain as a pilgrimage. The one and a half kilometre round walk to the summit and back takes approximately one hour in good weather. Excellent views can be had of the Antrim and Scottish coasts to the east. Ballymena town, Lough Neagh and the Sperrin Mountains are all normally visible to the west whilst the Bann Valley and the higher summits of the Antrim Hills can be seen to the North.
