Over the October half term we headed away on the ferry, leaving Belfast about 1600. As we passed Holywood we were still enjoying the fresh air on the deck when we looked back at Belfast and saw the glorious sun beams coming down thru the clouds over the city. I’ve never seen Belfast from this angle before, it looked like we were leaving another world.

In early July 2013, whilst on a family holiday on the North Antrim coast of Ireland I spent a number of nights waiting for the right tidal conditions and lighting to capture this shot of the swimming pool beside the Convent in Portstewart. On the final night, the tide was going out as twilight closed in and gave me the opportunity to capture the steps in the lovely Blue light.
