So far the weather in Northern Ireland at the start of 2014 has been pretty wet week to week. We’ve had a couple of good weekends which is a great excuse to get out and explore. Below are a few photos from a couple of trips to the north coast of Ireland with my partner. We visited Downhill beach one weekend and headed to Ballintoy harbour and Dunluce castle a couple of weekends later. The first image below of Ballintoy harbour is a composite image made up of ten different images merged together to create one large 30 megapixel image.
