Carlingford Lough

Carlingford Lough
I hope I'm not mistaken. After studying a topographical map, I believe this body of water is Carlingford Lough. North of the lough (left of photo) is the Mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland, and south of the lough (right side of photo) is the Cooley Mountains in Republic of Ireland.

Yep, so the Northern Ireland-Republic border pretty much runs through the middle of Carlingford Lough.

The river at the bottom flowing into the lough is Newry River.

Once again I'm very grateful to Neill for driving me up the hill. Without a car, I could have barely made it to Dundalk, Newry or Carlingford on my own, but never the off-beat lookout areas like where we are now. I'm very lucky to have such hospitable and generous friends.

Bedankt! too bad that I had broke my polarising filter the night before when I dropped my camera... otherwise I think it might have turned out a bit better!

True... at least it didn't actually rain though. Hi Rhisiart!
