Ballycopeland Windmill, Co.Down / by admin

Ballycopeland Windmill by Geoff McGrath Photography Tonight I was coming home from Bangor and since I always carry my camera with me, decided to go back to Ballycopeland Windmill to take another look at it.  I'd photographed this beautiful windmill just the night before but was not happy with the results.  I'm so glad that I returned to photograph Ballycopeland Windmill because I think the results proved it was well worth the effort.


The beauty of strong lighting is the beautiful contrast between light and shade.  To me, painting with light only works when you have depth of shadow to compliment it.


County Down is such a fantastic and rich resource and the more I live here, the more I realise how incredible blessed I am.  Not everyone has such amazing and iconic subject matter right on their doorstep.  Its not just Ballycopeland Windmill, but Donaghadee Harbour, Copeland Island, Helen's Bay, Scrabo Tower and the rest of the Ards Peninsula.  In time I hope to share these with you too.


I would really appreciate it if you would share my blog with others.
