Cloughmore, is a huge granite boulder which lies, on the side of Slieve Martin, 300m (about 1000 feet) above the town of Rostrevor, County Down, Northern Ireland. The name comes from the Irish “an Chloch Mhór”’ which means “the big stone”. Hence it is known locally simply as “The Big Stone”.

There was plenty of room on top of the rock for a photographer and tripod to stand and take the source images that made up this 360° panorama.

Cloughmore weighs approximately 30 tons. It is a glacial erratic. It was probably transported from Scotland, probably from an island in Strathclyde bay and deposited on a level area of Slieve Martin, by the retreating ice during the last Ice Age.

This is acknowledged in local myth and legend through a story of a conflict between Fionn mac Cumhaill – “The Giant of Summer” and Ruscaire – “The Giant of Snow and Ice”. Ruscaire had stolen Fionn’s sword and so the fight degenerated into rock throwing and ultimately Fionn mac Cumhaill threw the Cloughmore from the Cooley Mountains, on the other side of Carlingford Lough landing where it now lies.

Fionn mac Cumhaill – in English Finn McCool – features in lots of legends not just about Cloughmore but about the formation of other geographic features on the North and East coast of Ireland, including: Giants Causeway, Lough Neagh and the Isle of Mann.


Photographic and Technical Details

#This high dynamic range ( HDR ) panorama was created by combining 30 separate digital photographs. The source images for this panorama were shot in Raw mode on a Canon EOS 5d Mk ii with a 15mm Canon Full Frame Fisheye The 30 separate shots were stitched and blended together using Hugin an open source panorama tool. Hugin in turn invoked Enblend to smooth the seams and Enfuse to create the High Dynamic Range effect.
