Artist's Description

Hi

This is an older shot from a while back, 2005 to be exact. The North Coast of Antrim is an absolutley stunning place for any budding photographer! I spent an hour or so at this location one evening and took many shots from different locations. A bit of post-processing was done to enhance the overall image, ill explain that below.

Ballintoy is a quiet sleepy little village nestled within the shadow of Knocksaughey hill which gives shelter against the harsh winter winds and creates a beautiful backdrop in the summer. The road into the village winds it’s way down Knocksaughey hill passing by the entrance to Larryban and Carrickarede Rope Bridge, continuing past a couple of pubs where you can quench your thirst for a few moments before turning right on to the harbour road. Ballintoy’s hidden beauty is found at the end of the harbour road where you will find a small beach and a limestone harbour. The first Ballintoy harbour was built in the eighteenth century by a trickster of the name ‘Graceless’ Stewart to allow the shipping of cheap coal to Dublin. In recent years the harbour has been upgraded and is very popular with fishermen and deep sea divers alike. There is beautiful little limestone built cafe at the harbour and nearby a footpath along which you can walk around the headland to Whitepark Bay. In the harbour there is an old lime kiln which you can drive/walk up onto and eat you picnic.

Thanks for taking the time to look and read about this work!
