The Lime Tree Walk
Lime Tree Walk takes you along the avenue of pollarded lime trees under-planted by snowdrops and spring flowers
Sunrise At Derryhale
Beautiful winter morning,as the rising sun give me some beautiful warm light on the trees.
Trowagh Bay Sunset
Trowagh Bay is home to the fishing village of Derrytrasna,set in the Bann Montiaghs area of the South Lough Neagh Wetlands,the largest expanse of fresh water in the British Isles. The remaining pier is testament to the once thriving fishing community which worked the Lough for catches of eel and pollan.A few fishing boats remain but the bulk of the fishing fleet have long since disappeared with the passage of time.
The Dark Hedges
This beautiful avenue of beech trees was planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century. It was intended as a compelling landscape feature to impress visitors as they approached the entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House. Two centuries later, the trees remain a magnificent sight and have become one of the most photographed natural phenomena in Northern Ireland
The Giants Causeway
Some very rough sea's at the causeway,taken shortly after sunrise.
Flanked by the wild North Atlantic Ocean and a landscape of dramatic cliffs, for centuries the Giant’s Causeway has inspired artists, stirred scientific debate and captured the imagination of all who see it.
The Giants Causway
Taken at the Discovery Centre at Lough Neagh.This particular morning it was like a winter wonderland.
Summer evening at the dark hedges. Ever since the Game of Thrones was filmed from here,it is not easy to get no cars/people in the frame.....
Sunset At White Rocks Beach
The beach, situated just off the Causeway Coastal Route, enjoys a stunning natural coastal location, with the limestone cliffs of the White Rocks stretching from Curran Strand to Dunluce Castl

My favourite time of the day.....just as the sun appears above the horizon to herald a new day.
Ireland,relatively speaking contains more bogland (1/8 of the Island) than any other Country in Europe. Her a combination of low sun and lots of mist,give this scene an ethereal feel.
Winter sunrise at the Discovery centre,at Oxford Island,Lough Neagh
Autumn evening at lakes at Craigavon.

Oxford Island, the National Nature Reserve offers excellent opportunities for people to get close to nature. It is a peninsula today but
was an island prior to 1850's before the Lough was successively lowered to prevent Winter flooding of surrounding farmland.
Sunrise at Fairhead
Long exp.from Ballycastle looking out to the sunrise at fair head.
One of my personal favourites from the bluebell wood.
Dawn at Fanad.
Camped here all nigh to get this shot.
This remarkable piece of engineering was constructed in the late 19th century to carry the railway that once linked Armagh to Keady and Castleblaney. It consists of 11 arches standing more than 21 meter (70 feet) high, together spanning over 174 meter (570 feet). The Callan river runs underneath it in this picturesque part of County - Armagh.
Castlewellan Peace Maze
The world's second largest permanent hedge maze was designed to commemorate the peace and reconciliation efforts of Northern Ireland in the past century.
Castlewellan Forest Park.
Never knew about this place,and only came across it by chance. Surly the "hidden treasure" of the whole forest park....
