Family Photography in Belfast

Family is important. It’s good to make memories and record family relationships on a regular basis, and to capture images that will be good enough to frame and hang in the family home.

Photo-Essay ‘Scrabo’

On Saturday 1st October, I went for a walk up to Scrabo Tower, on the outskirts of Newtownards.  This landmark has towered over much of my life, living and working around the Ards area.  The tower was built in 1857, 540 ft above sea-level, as a memorial to the 3rd Marquess of Londonderry, Viscount castlereagh, Charles Stewart.    The tower is situated in a country park, close to Scrabo Golf Club, and is approached by car only as far as the golf club entrance, then by foot up a steep path to the summit.  Thankfully, there are resting places on the ascent!

Being October, the road up to tower ran beside fields that had just been baled, – which provided my image of the day, and set the scene for my exploration of the towers surroundings.
