Left hand down a bit....

Spotted this guy over the back garden in a tight turn---- 12-60 with E30

Hang Glider coming down from Slieve Donard the highest peak in the Mournes heading for the beach.



Then I went out with a 14-54mm (Mk 1?) I picked up on the bay it seems OK.

Sunset looking out over the bay towards the Mournes.



and another the Hang Glider had taken off from the top of the peak left of centre and landed on the beach at the bottom left......



comments welcome.

Now I can truly appreciate the line of your lovely ballad, "Where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea," popularised by Australian baritone, Peter Dawson.

Beautiful shots there, Ed.

Re: Left hand down a bit....

What a beautiful shot No.2 is - love the seaweed and branches that make it less of a 'typical lovely reflection of sunset', and the foreground adds good balance to the hills.

Regards
Chris

Surely you mean Phil Lynott (thin Lizzy)

Tell me the legends of long ago
When the kings and queens would dance in the realm of the Black Rose
Play me the melodies I want to know
So I can teach my children, oh

Pray tell me the story of young C Chulainn
How his eyes were dark his expression sullen
And how he'd fight and always won
And how they cried when he was fallen

Oh tell me the story of the Queen of this land
And how her sons died at her own hand
And how fools obey commands
Oh tell me the legends of long ago

Where the mountains of Mourne come down to the sea
Will she no come back to me
Will she no come back to me

Oh Shenandoah I hear you calling
Far away you rolling river
Roll down the mountain side
On down on down go lassie go

Oh Tell me the legends of long ago
When the kings and queens would dance in the realms of the Black Rose
Play me the melodies so I might know
So I can tell my children, oh

My Roisin Dubh is my one and only true love
It was a joy that Joyce brought to me
While William Butler waits
And Oscar, he's going Wilde

Ah sure, Brendan where have you Behan?
Looking for a girl with green eyes
My dark Rosaleen is my only colleen
That Georgie knows Best

But Van is the man
Starvation once again
Drinking whiskey in the jar-o
Synge's Playboy of the Western World

As Shaw, Sean I was born and reared there
Where the Mountains of Mourne come down to the sea
Is such a long, long way from Tipperary

by the no 2 is a cracker the forground I think makes it

Really like the first sunset. Superb colours, great reflection and powerful foreground. A wonderful picture.

Re: Left hand down a bit....

Thanks to all for your comments. I will go with the Percy French version. I live at the foot of Slieve Donard where the Mountains of Mourne do sweep down to the sea, a place were you can walk off a beach and straight up a mountain.
Strangely shot three was taken first the reflection was rippled by the ducks flying off the beach as I walked down. I moved slightely and waited and got a calm moment took the shot and five minutes later it was dark!

Beautiful shots there, Ed.
i concur, the Mournes are well captured in those second two shots, very serene and tranquil.
