Crawfordsburn Country park

Release from Child Minding duties and a beautiful morning allowed a short walk today. A bit of a luxury. I took a few pics and thought I would share a few. Its amazing what we have on our doorsteps but don’t always appreciate.

Its difficult to get exposures right with such contrast in light from deep shadow to bright sky but some of the images have worked out ok.

This is the railway bridge that is part of the Bangor to Belfast line

The edges of the paths are literally packed with young beech saplings anything from 10-20 inches tall. Most are growing in leaf mold and can literally be pulled out by hand. they will probably never be allowed to grow much as they would restrict the narrow paths. I thought a few would make a nice group planting. Something to think about if I could get permission to lift them. There was no one about today.

    Nice photos Michael. That’s part of the park I haven’t been too. I usually just pass it along the coast.

    I love that first shot of the Bridge.

  2. Thanks Ian. Thats the Old inn at the top of the Fall. It can be accessed right beside the Old Inn at Crawfordsburn
