kilkeel in pastelsKilkeel is a small commercial fishing port on the East coast of Northern Ireland, sheltered as it were in the lee of the Mountains of Mourne. I set up on the quayside late in the afternoon, attracted by the sharp light and colours and the strong composition. I was tempted to put in a couple of figures somewhere in the background, but it would have disturbed the stillness of the scene.
