Mourne landscapes.

Mournes from Slieve Croob.
The summit of Slieve Croob gives classic views of the Mournes-from here it could be Narnia.
Taken on a magical day with an east wind blowing snow showers inland from the Irish Sea
Ben Crom with ragged clouds blowing across from Binnian.
Heathers give life to Mourne hillsides in August.
Unfortunately some detail has been lost across the valley in this view from Doan  towards the Blue Lough.
Looking north-east from Slieve Foy across Carlingford Lough provides stunning landscapes
The top of Doan is probably the best place to get all-round views of the Mournes
Views  of mountain and beach walking south from St.John’s Point towards Tyrella and Ballykinlar are unequalled.
For a few weeks in August, heathers transform the hillsides. Worth stopping for, on the slopes of Bearnagh.
Eroded peat and purple heathers on the way to Doan.
This gap in the granite on Hen Mountain opens up views towards Pigeon Rock and Rocky River track
Kilkeel River runs into Ben Crom reservoir Kilkeel and the Irish Sea are beyond (from Slievenaglogh)
