One of our favourite spots to stop off for a bit of a beach comb is right at the end of the Ards Peninsula.
One thing I’ve found in my brief time living ‘back home’ is that the character of Lough Neagh seems to change with the weather. It can be windswept with waves or flat calm and overcast. Today was a calm day, with a few ripples, but plenty of cloud – the ideal day for a big stopper long exposure. As I was taking the shots the sun deigned to shine through the clouds, resulting in some wonderful rays beaming down from above.
This photo was taken at Lough Shore Park in Antrim.
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.
