Portaferry, Co.Down

A short visit to Portaferry today gave me the opportunity to walk around for a short time with the Fujifilm X-T2.

The ferry port is a popular short crossing point between Portaferry and Strangford.  Portaferry boast the smallest pub in Ireland, M.E. Dumigan.  This image has been oversaturated and had a watercolour effect added.

Portaferry Castle, right beside the Exploris Aqurium, Built in the 16th Century by William le Savage it is a square tower-house built to overlook the entrance to Strangford Lough.  In 1635 Sir James Montgomery of Greyabbey added some extra comforts for his sister to live there, repairing the roof and floors.

At the small pond beside Exploris I met a friendly duck, – probably the biggest duck I’ve ever seen, – as big as a goose. (I’m no ornothologist – so maybe it is a goose!)

This wooden boat was tethered on the street near the ferry terminal.  Here’s the original image and one that’s been oversaturated.
