Nestled between Co. Down on it’s northern shores and the Cooley Peninsula, Co. Louth on the South, the area around Carlingford Lough is one of outstanding natural beauty. Steeped in legend and history the area has something for everyone. We hope our website helps you to explore and fall in love with all it has to offer.
This week's photo comes from the talented lens of Robert McKee. Robert is from Kilkeel, the capital of the Mournes. He only recently discovered a hidden talent for photography. He loves colourful landscapes, sunrises and sunsets, and also the night sky. This photo of the "Milky Way soaring above the trees" is from a recent night visit to the beautiful Silent Valley Mountain Park, located within the Mourne Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Robert's camera is practically with him all the time now! There is so much beauty in the area we live especially the Mourne Mountains and the Carlingford Lough area where Robert can regularly be found. He has recently started selling prints from his Facebook page RBM Photography and some can also be found in the Made in Mourne shop in Kilkeel. You can also find him on Instagram: @robertmckee17
