Lough Neagh

I lead a VERY exciting life.  After a wet morning in the open air, doing some commercial photography, I got to stop for packed lunch at a favourite car-park!  Oxford Island, just outside Lurgan, Co.Armagh is a nature reserve, perched on the southern shores of Lough Neagh, the largest fresh-water lake in the British Isles.  My plan was to have lunch, then go for a stroll with a camera, but that came to nothing, for as soon as I’d finished eating the heavens opened and the rain poured down.  Again.

Undeterred, I made myself as waterproof as possible, and wandered down to the water edge, – even the few ducks that were still around were scuttling away for shelter. Still, I managed one or two images before I gave up, and returned like a soaked rat to the dryness of the car.  Here’s a wee sample or two…
