Storm ‘Barbara’ is on the way, a large area of low pressure has been building a big swell out in the Atlantic for the last lot of days, and the waves are incredible. This is Portballintrae, N. Ireland, 21/12/2016 (Winter solstice)
Coleraine, N.Ireland 25/11/2016. Mist rises over the Cutts at Castleroe, as the sun begins to rise over the River Bann. Temperatures dropped to as much as -7 degrees overnight, causing widespread frost and fog.
