Ballyholme Bay, Bangor, is known for its sandy beach and promenade. It’s a popular destination for dog walkers, joggers and people just out for a stroll. The usually calm water is a popular spot for water sports enthusiasts, particularly for windsurfing and sailing.
The photograph above was taken with an iPhone 8, which I think is about five years old. I’ve reduced the highlights slightly in Lightroom but that’s all.
Meteorological Spring starts today, 1st March. At 7.5C with a cold wind it didn’t feel like Spring but to mark the occasion I went to Ballyholme for a walk on the beach and of course brought a camera. I shot some video clips but as always, remembering this site I got some still images as well.
I was glad to get back to the car. On the beach 7.5C with a cold wind wipes any thoughts of Spring from your mind.
I’ve reduced my output for stock even further over the past month. I’ve sent a few images to Alamy but that’s about it. I’ve been taking photographs of things, people and events that attract my attention with no aim in mind other than improving my processing skills and enjoying the images.
The government is introducing another lock down because of the pandemic although it’s being called a circuit breaker this time. It doesn’t sound to be as severe as the first lock down and hopefully it won’t last too long.
The weather recently has been much better than we expect for this time of year and this helps to keep peoples spirits up.
These photographs are from one of the not so good days although as you can see people still manage to get into the water and enjoy themselves.
