Up to Down (and Antrim)

At the end of June, we took a week off to go camping up at Castle Ward in Co. Down. Actually it was more like ‘Glamping’, as we stayed in a wooden camping pod, which compared to a tent is the height of luxury! Highlights of the week including climbing Slieve Donard, visiting the Giant’s Causeway and the traversing the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. Below are some of the many photos we came back with…

If at first Ewe don’t succeed…

There is something delightful about watching young lambs running about skipping and jumping – enjoying life in the way that is common to all sorts of species, from kittens to puppies to foals, calves or even humans!  In the field just over the road from us there have been three lambs to enjoy watching these past few weeks and trying to photograph them has been surprisingly difficult.  First of all they are often too far away and secondly if they hear me approaching at all they quickly scatter and thirdly, the light has been so poor recently which has meant dull pictures.  After many failed attempts I finally managed to get a couple of photos – not quite what I wanted but they will have to do as the lambs and sheep have now been moved on (hopefully to another field but I don’t know).
