The Giants Causeway... N. Ireland.. with its basalt polygonal columns from its volcanic activity 60 million years ago is a moody place in the fading light and has a dramatic effect on the senses. I love this place and always throws up new opportunities. Hope you enjoy this one! Its been a while since my posts. Enjoy your evening. Cheers.. Ian

Dawn on this beaut Lough Erne's Bay in County Fermanagh N.Ireland. The early mist and cloud at first light of this morning  was almost monochromatic and I got some nice shots but with the sun ascending things got colourful as I set up on the end of this Jetty for the next 10 mins or so.

Early morning sunrise on Strangford lough at Island hilI I set up around these remnants of an old jetty, I shot it with some negative space to the left and with the lack of cloud and the early mist gave it the simplicity feel I was after. Beautiful Morning!

Early morning from Scrabo Hill I was given a pretty dramatic light show with these huge shards of light bursting through a particularly misty morning down the miles stretch of the Ards peninsula in N.Ireland. Its a great vista with Scotland and Isle of white even visible on a good day but I homed in on this part as this seemed to be where the action was on this morning anyway..

Mussenden Temple near downhill,castle rock. Northern Ireland. 
I just printed this image into my exhibition range this week to 150cm x 75cm where I exhibited my work at the local art market in Belfast today with some pics over at 
This was one of the last places I visited on my road trip recently of this coastline during sunset on the north sea cliffs of the beautiful  Downhill beach and incoming Atlantic Ocean. After climbing over the wall to set up my shot my presence was made unwelcome from the local sea birds with various gulls bombing toward me and made my time on the cliff a little more precarious. It was along way down so I was sure to capture and find comfort in being on the right side of the wall. I guess it there for a reason! Obviously ;-)     curated #plusphotoextract   +Jarek Klimek

Here is another shot for my latitude album feel free to explore :) This one from my trip up the Antrim coast in N'Ireland. Ballintoy's sea stacks give a primordial view up this coastline and with unsettled weather for a few days I was pretty stoked to see some colour again when they clouds cleared around dusk before I headed east. Camper van .. parked up not to far from here... so I was only too happy to explore in this light before dark..

Another shot taken from my Antrim coast trip taken on Murlough bay placed in the north-eastern corner of Northern Ireland . This windswept tree overhangs one of its cliff faces pointing out to the Irish sea so I used a long exposure silhouetting the tree against the moving cloud and was pleased with the result once toned...
