It’s back to the North Coast, one of my favourite parts of Northern Ireland! This time to spend an October day around Ballintoy, a picturesque harbour between the Giant’s Causeway and Ballycastle, Co. Antrim. I took the Fujifilm X-T30 and the Nikon F100.
Ballintoy (Baile an Tuaigh – the northern townland) village is less than a mile from the harbour, which is accessed by a narrow winding road. Even the journey to the harbour is visually rewarding.
For photographers it’s a worthwhile journey, and there were several photographers on the day I visited, – a dry, cold day, with a moderately strong on-shore wind – ideal circumstances for big waves!
There are two caves near the harbour, and these, with the rocks and sea made the harbour an ideal filming location for the cult TV series, ‘Game of Thrones.’ Heres my contribution to the ‘dark and sinister meme.’
Just around the coast, the next long cove is the beautiful WHITE PARK BAY, miles of lovely golden sands…
