April 2020

My daughter Heather, catching up on school work during the lockdown of spring 2020.

It’s been an odd time, staying close to home, only straying out for walks and swims and shopping when we really need stuff.  Hope everyone is doing OK  out there in the rest of the world.

2013

Funny year for photos last year. Spent most of my spare time shooting video, and work was a little uninspiring. Here’s a few random photos from during the year! Best of luck for 2014 everyone, lets see where it takes us.

Coleraine celebrated 400 years of a royal charter this year. A big fireworks event was held along side the River Bann. I made this picture.. a little cruel perhaps..

Ballinrees

Ballinrees, on the Windyhill Road, Coleraine. Beautiful spot for a dander round. Coleraine was totally shrouded in mist, but up the hill at the lake, it was sunny, misty and beautiful.

Family day

Enjoyed a lovely walk in Drumlamph Wood near Maghera today with the family. Here’s some oak leaves in the mud, on one of the many winding paths.

Its a great place to go explore, even on a wet and muddy day like today.
