Short Time Lapse
Short time lapse in the Mournes.....I find it fascinating watching the play of light and clouds on the landscape
Sunset From Donard.
Beautiful evening on NI highest peak.
Some nice early morning light at this picturesque harbour at the foot of the mourne mountains.
Dromiskin Round Tower
This was the site of an ancient monastery founded by Lughidh, a disciple of St. Patrick, in 5th or 6th century
Beautiful sunset at the old road in spelga.It only becomes visible when water levels in the dam are low.
Clontygora Court Tomb
Known locally as the ‘King’s Ring’, this court tomb has a prominent position in the southeast part of the rugged Slieve Gullion ring-dyke.
It is said that the view from the flagstaff is the best in the whole of Ireland!
Dawn At the Keep
Narrow Water Castle is a famous 16th-century tower house and bawn near Warrenpoint in Northern Ireland. It is beside the A2 road and on the County Down bank of the Clanrye River, which enters Carlingford Lough a mile to the south
Tassagh Viaduct Sunrise.
This remarkable piece of engineering was constructed in the late 19th century to carry the railway that once linked Armagh to Keady and Castleblaney. It consists of 11 arches standing more than 21 meter (70 feet) high, together spanning over 174 meter (570 feet). The Callan river runs underneath it in this picturesque part of County - Armagh.
St John's Point
Meelmore Summit Shelter.
Some nice ,early morning light on Meelmore.
Light Beams on Ben Crom
I am on my way to the summit of Slieve Corragh for sunset when suddenly the sun burst through the clouds flooding the valley with some beautiful light.
Some nice evening light in the mountains,near spelga dam
The Annalong river near it's source in the high mournes.Slieve Lamagan is in the background.
Wind and Sea
‘Wind and Sea’, a stunning bronze sculpture featuring two back to back dancing figures almost five metres high, was sculpted and casted in Florence and has now been installed at the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa in Newcastle.
Ireland,relatively speaking contains more bogland (1/8 of the Island) than any other Country in Europe. Her a combination of low sun and lots of mist,give this scene an ethereal feel.
Light In The Valley
A view of ben Crom reservoir from the top of Ben Crom mountain. I hope that I have managed to capture the dizziness of the shear drop to the water below.
Binnian's North Tor.
The final push to the summit of Slieve Binnian's North Tor.
Slieve Bearnagh (739m) is one the the most distinctive mountains in the Mournes and renowned for the granite tors on its summit
Sadly these stepping stones are no longer here.They have been washed away by the River.
Some beautiful early morning light allowed me to capture the mountain reflection in the reservoir.
The land on the south side of the mountains is known as the Kingdom of Mourne. The region’s main industries are farming, fishing, and granite.
