Octagonal rock formations of the Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland Killed Me…

After having crossed the northernmost places in Republic of Ireland, this trip naturally heads up towards Northern Ireland. The coastline, as rough as it used to be, becomes brighter due to the presence of limestone. Landscapes become also more dramatic and the restless ocean smashes against sharp rocks giving birth to a salt-tasting and sticky haze. Lights however remain difficult. Golden lights did not appear for a long time which makes me lose little by little all motivation. Add to this the large quantity of buses, camper vans and other vehicules and you will find my muse six feet under.

Then, for the last days on this island, I satisfy myself with a couple of ‘souvenir’ shots without any real artistic attempt, simply enjoying being there without looking forward to compose the ultimate shot. Already quite satisfied with what I’ve got so far in the memory cards, I give myself the chance to enjoy the unique pleasure of the savor of this dark and soft nectar called Guinness along with a greasy fish & chips while contemplating the infinite horizon, without ‘thinking photography’… And I must admit that sometimes, it is really good! :)
