Royal Co Down
The venue for the 2015 Irish Open.I am not a golfer,but if there is a better view in world golf,I would like to know where it is :-) :-)
Sunrise at Narrow Water
Beautiful early winter morning at Narrow Water Castle
Bloody Bridge Sunrise
This spot on the Co-Down coast was much favoured by smugglers in the late 18th century .
Sunset from the rocky shore at St Johns Point.
My favourite cottage in the Mournes
Sunset At The Valley.
The Silent Valley is a Mountain Park situated in the high Mournes in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, features a dam ringed by dramatic Mountains.
Dawn At The Keep
Narrow Water Keep lies on the Co. Down bank of the Newry River, which enters Carlingford Lough a mile to the south.
I am standing on the top of the Flagstaff Mountain,at sunrise.It is often said that this is Ireland's Best view.
The Shimna River as it meanders it way through Tollymore Forest Park. The canopy is giving me some nice reflected colour in the water.
Early Morning At Murlough.
Some beautiful early morning light on the mountains from out at Murlough.A 3 stop ND filter allowed me to calm the Irish sea,which I thinks adds to the peaceful nature of the scene.
Tollymore Stepping Stones
I have waded into the Shimna River,with the good old fashioned wellies on to get a different composition of the falls.
Tollymore Forest Park
Tollymore forest Park is especially beautiful in the Autumn.This is the famous stepping stones,across the River Shimna,that is a "must see" for any visitors.
This spot on the Co-down coast was much favoured by smugglers in the late 18th century .Contraband was landed here and spirited across the mountains to Hilltown.
One of my favourite walks in the Mountains is walking down Binnian to the head of the Annalong Valley.
First Light At Slieve Corragh
An early start ensured I was here to capture the first light of the day.It is this light,and the mood that it creates that I try my best to capture.
I am standing on the summit of Pigeon Rock mountain.I like how the sheep are standing in the perfect position to catch the last light,and how the mountains recede into the distance.
The Shimna as it meanders its way through Tollymore Forest Park.This place is especially beautiful in Autumn.
