a couple of weekends ago we visited Stirling uni and on the way home had a flying visit in the rain to Dunblane cathedral.

It’s beautiful, even on a grey wet Sunday morning.  The brick work around the great wooden doors is worn away – it’s hard to get a picture that doesn’t look a bit crooked, the graveyard is packed and there is a river at the bottom of the hill.

This week I spent 3 days at work at the Farset International Centre on the Springfield Road in Belfast.  Wasn’t expecting this view.  You can see right across the city from large parts of the Belfast Trust to the shipyards.  These shots were taken on Thursday from early morning through the day as the skies cleared and the sun broke through.




Sun setting on summer

it’s September, the first signs of the trees changing appeared weeks ago, the schools are back and the traffic back to “normal”.  It feels like summer is over.  It seemed fitting to put up a few sunsets, some taken this summer in places like Portugal or the North Antrim coast, others from previous years.
