Slieve Bearnagh, Mourne Mountians, County Down, Northern Ireland
Slieve Bearnagh from the Irish “Sliabh Bearna” meaning “Gapped Mountain” gets its name from its two giant rocky tors and the col lying between them. It is the 4th highest in the range and another 700m+ peak carrying the Mourne Wall with saddles at Pollaphuca to the West and Hares Gap to the East.
This image is part of a series of photographs I took of Sleive Beraneagh as became gradually engulfed and shrouded under cloud. This is a particular feature of climbing in the Mourne Mountains as a clear sky can suddenly be replaced by rapidly descending clouds that reduces visibility to zero in a matter of minutes.
