Castlerock / by admin

Castlerock Well, I'm still here... just very busy and not having a lot of time these days to update my blog.  Mostly I'm busy with my 9-5 and also working around home.  The problem with pouring yourself into studies for 3 years is that a lot of things get forgotten about.

Now that I'm out of the HND, I've been catching up.  I do have to admit thought, that while I found the HND rewarding.... nonetheless, I found it somewhat soul destroying as I am so camera'd out that its been difficult to motivate myself to get back on the horse.

However, I am slowly getting back into the groove again and recently spent some time in an area that I visited a couple of years ago, with little to show from the trip.  This time, I managed to have a bit more luck and I want to share a few shots with you from this trip.

The last time we were here in Castlerock it rained and rained.  Then it rained some more for good measure. However, this time, we had more luck.  A lot of people think that you need to get on the road early to get great shots.  However, unless I'm heading up to stay on the North Antrim Coast, I tend to just meander my way up there in the afternoon.  I'm always hoping it doesn't rain but also that it looks like it MIGHT rain.  Blue skies are generally not my thing so if you're into sunny skies, my work will probably not appeal to you!  But if you're into deepy moody, dark and overcast?  (I mean skies, btw, not the people!!)  Well, then you and I will get on famously, as this is the main stay of most of my work.

Each of these shots are looking over, as you can see from the captions, towards Donegal.  Don't forget to click on the images to see them much larger.  I'd also appreciate if you used the share button and share my work on social media.

As you can see someone was surfing and I was just in the right place and time to get it.  I waited until I got a good profile of the person and then snapped!

I love that so many of my shots are able to incorporate the heavy long wild grass that grows in this country.
