Sunset Over Distant Mourne Mountains

After Eileen and I visited Kearney and Ballyquintin Farm we headed homeward and when it was nearly dark we saw the Mountains of Mourne in the distance with a wonderful light coming down to the sea and both of us took some shots.  The first 6 shots are Eileen's and the following 5 are mine. 
 
So, once again, it is time for a cuppa, sit comfortably, and enjoy.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I hope you are enjoyed these shots. 
 
Tomorrow, Eileen and I go travel to to where the song says,
 
 "The Mountains of Mourne swept down to the sea". 
 
So look in to my post tomorrow and see what we discovered.
 
Have a great day/evening.
 
Thank you for visiting.

  27. These are beautiful! It can be so hard to capture these rays with your camera lens. The last ones are my favorites, I like the light. And I must say with the way everything is...the flatness, the water, the mountains in the distance...it reminds me a bit of Japan.
