Reading the catalogue description of this I thought that it would be like a "Cardall" image, an idealised bit of Paddywhackery but when I looked at the image my reaction was WOW! This is so different, almost Eastern European in its style and there are so many things to wonder at! Will we ever know where it was taken?

And, in a way that should no longer surprise me I guess, the "WOW" factored continued. When derangedlemur neatly identified this photo as being taken along the Garron Road, close to Glenariff in County Antrim.....
