A couple of weeks ago Stuart and Katie came to visit (along with a friend). We spent some time in Southport and walking around the Marine Lake.
The Strangford Lough coast is one of my favourite haunts in Northern Ireland. I spent a lot of time motorbiking around here in my youth. One of the nice things about being at the bottom end of the Ards Peninsula is that you can see the sun setting at the top of the lough. This one was taken in June from Portaferry.
I do have a passion for minimalism and I love to ‘see’ this sort of image. I noticed the couple walking along the beach and waited until I could capture them without anyone else in the frame – the beach was almost empty, so it wasn’t difficult. I’ve done very little post processing on this image, it stands on it’s own merit as a minimal composition.
