CARLINGFORD, is a glacial fjord or sea inlet. The name comes from the Old Norse Kerlingfjǫršr, whch means "narrow sea-inlet of the hag. This is where the "Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the Sea". I was lucky enough to catch this view on a day when the cloud lay heavy on the mountains adding drama and atmosphere to this beautiful sea lough.
To the right are the Mourne Mountains of Northern Ireland, to the left is Slieve Foy in the Republic of Ireland.

I like the triangle of the rocks in the FG and the drama of the sky is really well captured as are the distant green mountains.
There is a slight tilt down to the right on the horizon but it does not greatly detract from a fine shot.

carlingford lough is a fantastic place, especially when you get some light such as this. i go there fairly regularly, but tend to head towards cranfield. the combination of the foreground rocks, the background mountains, and the wonderful clouds above make this is a great composition.
