Saturday Pic(s) of the week


Pic 1 :  John Patton 

Deserted House – Glenelly Valley

“This deserted farm cottage is in the Glenelly Valley. It was a substantial dwelling. Have the owners descendants carried on farming there in a new house or is this evidence of emigration? Departing Gael or Gall?”


Pic 2: John Patton

Sea Arches – Crohy Head

“This scene is along the coast from Machaire , outside of Dungloe. Sea has eroded these rocks. A better composition would probably have been obtained from the shoreline with a tripod but the sheer cliff face was too much for this seanduine tuirseach. However, the drama of the scene was worthy of record, I thought.”

Pics 3, 4, 5 and 6: by Antrim Lens

“As it was such a nice day I didn’t want to waste it so took a walk at lunchtime along the Loughview Road, Lough Neagh. Great views across to the Sperrins  and with very little traffic it’s a great road for walking.”



Pic 7: by Kieran Maxwell

“I call this Picture ‘Hide & Seek’ hopefully for obvious reasons. You’ll be glad to know that my 2 year old son Shea won this round. “

    Loved everyone of those photos. What a beautiful world we live in. That’s why we need to protect it on behalf of that youngster in the last pic.
