“He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Last June I visited Northern Ireland with my good friend Athena Carey and fellow co-founder of Light, Land and Sea. It was a very busy and productive trip that gave us an opportunity to finalise all the details of our June 2015 Photography Tour. It also gave us the chance to photograph all of the tour locations under the same conditions we will have when leading the tour next year.
This is one of those exciting locations, Dunluce Castle a “now-ruined medieval castle based on the beautiful Causeway Coast” (source: wiki), just 10 minutes from the iconic Giant’s Causeway. The castle is steeped in fascinating history dating back to the 13th century, and very recently “major archaeological excavations found significant remains of the “lost town of Dunluce”, which was razed to the ground in the Irish uprising of 1641”. While there, we met with a local Professional Blue Badge Guide who gave us a fascinating insight into the history and folklore of the castle. And I must admit his stories really effected how I photographed this location. I’m really delighted he has agreed to be our guide during the June 2015 Tour, so that he can impart the same sense of history and folklore on our tour participants. You can find out much more about Light, Land and Sea, including the details of the June 2015 Tour over on our Website.
