a few shots last weekend at Cushendun, the Irish sea was really calm. We usually see this swan when we visit, seemed keen to photographed!
The Christmas market at Belfast City Hall.
would you believe these photographs were all taken on the same day, same time, same beach. Just taken in different directions.
a grey, windy day on the north Antrim coast with waves to match.
its only a few months since I last took a few photographs of the dark hedges near Armoy. Even before 7am this morning I had to dodge either another photographer or the occasional car…..
..the morning sun managed to make an appearance from behind the clouds casting shadows across the branches…
..finally I thought I would go for an image that is less recognisable – as these trees are probably the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland.
this morning was very wet – but an opportunity to visit the dark hedges to take a few photographs in between the showers. The rain has 2 advantages – keeping away the tourists and creating puddles for reflection. Even so we still had to dodge about half a dozen people with their cameras and a number of cars. Apparently the dark hedges have become the most photographed natural feature in Northern Ireland – perhaps partly because it appeared in game of thrones. They are all beech trees, were planted in the 18th century as a grand entrance to a country house and are haunted (best visited at dusk to check out that feature)
