    • Thanks Elaine! The B&W trees (the Dark Hedges) actually featured an episode of the Game of Thrones tv series. I wouldn’t like to count how many hours it took to capture all these photos, but I think it was worth it.

    • Hey Nicole! How about the Black Cab tour of the areas affected by the Troubles and the Titanic? If you can stretch the trip, the North Antrim Coast is fab, we love the Giant’s Causeway and the Rope bridge – the scenery is spectacular! Hope you have an amazing time! x
