Photographer's Note

this is the coastline on dundrum bay, near the point where the bloody bridge river enters the irish sea. this is also the start of the track know as 'the brandy pad', an old smugglers’ route which led inland to small towns such as hilltown. brandy and other spirits, wine, spices, tobacco, tea, coffee, sugar and silk made their way to this secluded cove of the mourne coast via the isle of man, which was outside the control of customs and excise at that time.

i took this picture just moments before the sun appeared on the horizon. the rocks in the foreground are shale which line the coast and lie below the granites which form the mourne mountains that overlook this coastline.
