Photographer's Note

A building in a farm, surrounded by green grasslands dominating the sea. The photo was taken on the road from Downhill to Gortmore View Point, on the slopes of Bienvenagh Mountain, an area filed as Outstanding Natural Beauty Area. From this point of view you have a panorama on Magilligan peninsula, Lough Foyle, Inishowen peninsula and part of north coast of Northern Ireland to Giants Causeway. I read that on clear days you can see too Jura and Islay islands in Scotland ! There are picnic facilities if you want to eat and take the most from the place. As you can see the weather was very cloudy, not the best conditions to take spectacular photos. But I loved here how the dark clouds give a dark colour to the sea, it created a very peaceful atmosphere.
