Here I stand among the flowers,
and only count the sunny hours.
For me, dark days do not exist,
I’m a brazen-faced old optimist!
In other words, he and I only take pictures on sunny days. And that’s absolutely true. If you were to make an assumption about Northern Ireland’s weather based only on our photographs, you’d think we got nothing but sunny days. We all know that this is not true – we get snowy days too! – and sunny days have been scarce in the past couple of months, but I thought I’d post a few of our favourites from December and January for you anyway.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these pictures; they’re taken at some of our favourite places – Rowallane Gardens and Mount Stewart House – both National Trust properties close to Belfast. Others are taken in the Titanic Quarter, and Newcastle, Co Down. There’s one of Belfast City centre, and one of the H+W cranes from close to where I live.
I’m hoping for as many sunny days as possible in 2018! Although my New Year’s resolution is to take some rainy day pics as well
