A creative eye

In Northern Ireland we are ‘treated’ with such an array of weather, so this can make it difficult to plan everything as you want, however, living in NI I can’t let the weather dampen my spirit and ruin getting out and getting my shots. I love photography, it’s my go to and getaway from everything. A great way to clear the head and get creative.

 

I have always had a keen interest in photography and it has become such a huge hobby amongst many.

Within my role as a Graphic designer, the creative eye comes in handy when looking for that new and unique perspective of a location that others are yet to find; easier said that done at times.

Most of the time I have a pretty solid idea of where I am going, but it is nice to accidentally stumble upon a hidden gem.

Giant in the MistOne of the two giants appearing from misty and foggy Belfast below. I was on the balcony in work and I didn’t think there was going to be much to photograph, until the crane appeared from beneath the fog.

Starry Castle Ruins in Antrim: A brisk and beautiful night in the Antrim Castle Gardens. Maybe not as well known, and more accurately called the ‘Italianate Tower and Castle Ruins’. A beautiful focal point for an equally impressive night sky.

Albert Clock Light TrailsShot on a cold, dark night in Belfast City Centre, perfect light trail conditions. I got close to the Albert Clock and shot from down low using my trusty 10-18mm wide angle lens, which helped capture this beautiful, cool coloured, urban city shot.

B&W H&W: One of Belfast’s iconic cranes in the Harland & Wolff shipyard, edited and changed to Black and White, reflecting on Big Yellow’s brilliance in the foreground puddle.

Antrim’s Sunny Summer Castle GardensA beautiful, bright Summer’s day in the Antrim Castle Gardens, shot along one of its calm canals, surrounded by greenery and foliage. Great walking conditions with a perfect view

 

Image - Featured photographer, Justin McLean, photograph of bluebells, Portglenone Forest, Northern Ireland.

Bluebell Brilliance in PortglenoneSuch an amazing and enchanting location at this time of year. The bluebell brilliance that presents itself in Portglenone is stunning, as it covers the majority of the surrounding area. I took a minute, looked up at my surroundings and saw the power and beauty of nature all around me.
