Shadows of an Iron Fence
The winter sun cast the most gorgeous shadow of the fence surrounding Donaghadee Lighthouse onto the paving of the Harbour.
The corrosive effect of the sea air is clearly seen on this old chain.
I loved how the texture of the wood was accented by the light on this old bench located about half way around the harbour.
Every Little Part Matters
We can overlook so much in life and I think its often the little things that we easily ignore that hold things together for us, always, in the background playing their part, just like this pin.
The inner workings of the harbour crane.
A Fresh Coat?
Those old boat has seen better days and really needed a fresh coat of paint. However, for me, I love it like this as I get to capture all of the individual textures which really give it character.
Form in Shadow
One of my favourite images from this series, I loved the depth of shadow in this shot. When we are defining the form of something, I think its vital to have shadows because they show us dimension and depth. Its one thing to live in the light or in the dark, but it takes the shadows to bring meaning into everything.
Wrought Iron Fence
This fence surrounds the Lighthouse, allowing access to the chosen few.
Up on the Hill
Overshadowing the town, The Moat looks down upon us, casting its watchful eye over everything.
There's detail in the black.
A Spot to Rest
Casting a Shadow
I just love the shape of this shadow cast on the Lighthouse door.
In the Distance
The Lighthouse in the distance calls to me.
... but vital. A harbour wouldn't be much use without somewhere to moor your boat.
This elderly gentleman takes a daily walk along the pier. His shadow is beautifully broken up by the steps.
On a Rainy Day...
I returned on a rainy day and discovered the most gorgeous shadows.
Detail in the Black
I love the detail visible even in the blackest part of this door.
A rainy day brought out the best in this section of the harbour wall.
The Lighthouse... FINALLY
I purposefully left the lighthouse to the last because I wanted the story be about the harbour, all of it, not just this beautiful lighthouse.
