Mourne Mountains in the snow. Newcastle, County Down
This is a series of photographs I took while travelling around the Mourne Mountains and Silent Valley in Newcastle, County Down. It offers spectacular scenery and I was lucky to see blue skies and snow capped mountains. It was like being in another country! This area of the country remains as popular as ever with tourists, hiking enthusiasts as well as students who are out on their Duke of Edinburgh expeditions.
I spent a lot of my childhood visiting Newcastle, but mostly during spring and summer. Returning is always a wonderful experience and even more eye-opening during the winter.
Photographs taken in January 2015.
