My somewhat quirky views as I gaze at the world around me!

MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: SILENT VALLEY RESERVOIR, CO. DOWN

This view of the Silent Valley Reservoir is so very typical of Ireland….bursts of brilliant sunshine through the dark clouds.  The Silent Valley is deep  within the Mourne Mountains in County Down and the valley itself can only be reached on foot.  The reservoir was created in 1933 when the Kilkeel River was dammed.  The “infinity pool” effect intrigued me.  The view is looking to the south and the Atlantic Ocean.
