Looks remarkably like the view down the valley after you leave Glendalough in the Wicklow mountains heading uphill. Near an old mine as I recall.

Yeah, that's it, Glendalough. Thanks. I couldn't remember the name and thought that by posting the photo someone would remind of it.

Thanks Orion,

Glendalough is absolutely gorgeous. History, beauty and the Wicklow mountains as a bonus.

I'll stay with Ireland .

Name this prominent hill I was passing by .

Ha yes of course. Random note Conner is a very cool mountain to climb - looks very different from the back........ I've not got any photos handy at the moment so someone else can post if they like. I can post later tonight if no one jumps in

I'll have a stab. Looks like you are on a boat - walls look similar to that of Milford Sound - pointy thing may be Mitre Peak?

Not on a boat, and not at sea level. But you're not all that far away.

Bet the water was cold though.
Since we are on a NZ theme, here is another. What am I looking towards and from where?
