Dunluce Castle as seen from the Wild Goose

I took this picture of Dunluce Castle (Northern Ireland) from the Wild Goose, 2009. This is the castle pictured on Led Zeppelin’s “Houses Of The Holy”. The Wild Goose is a small yacht which was the first vessel to navigate the entire coast of Russia. The tale of how it now belongs to my sister and brother-in-law is rather interesting in itself! Perhaps I’ll tell it in another photo – watch this space…

Derry/Londonderry, 2009. A statue symbolizing peace.

Another of my photos from Derry/Londonderry, 2009. A statue symbolizing peace. Sadly, a firebomb planted by the IRA went of at a hotel in that very city on Friday, but thanks to a swift midnight evacuation, no one was hurt. #peace

Panoramic View of Ballintoy Harbour (village of ‘Pyke’ in HBO’s Game Of Thrones TV series!)

Ballintoy Harbour is an incredibly quaint little fishing harbour on the north coast of Northern Ireland, situated between Portrush and Ballycastle. It’s located about 1 km from the small village of Ballintoy, and is reached by the steep Knocksaughey Hill road. The village was used for the fictional town of Pyke in HBO’s medieval fantasy TV series Game of Thrones.
