Evenings In Newcastle Co Down

An evening walk on the beach at Newcastle.

Work last week took me to Newcastle in Co. Down for a few days which is a beautiful spot for photography, and is close to the Mourne Mountains, which I also took advantage of, and will include in separate posts. If that wasn’t enough, I was put up in the Slieve Donard Hotel for a few nights – a rare luxury. Most evenings I found myself walking on the stony beach in the town, and this post consists of images taken on those late walks.
