Hello my friends, well the rain stopped and the sun make a weak showing. So nipped down to the County down coast which is a half hour drive from home. The tide was out and there where plenty on bird life around. but it was to far out on the mudflats for photography. Would have waited for the incoming tide to push them back to the shore but the light drops here around 3.30pm (2.45pm when I got there) and will be dark an hour later.
There were just a few Redshank’s close to the shore, feeding on whatever lives under this liquid mud. So without boring you I’ll post a few photos of these small waders.
Grabbed a few shots of Rooks flying from the tree behind me.
The next shots were me just playing around with a redshank photo in B&W.
I hope you enjoyed this quick trip to the coast with me.
Before I go I want to wish you all Season’s Greeting, and THANK YOU all for your support over the year.
May all your wishes be granted in 2020.
Happy new year.
This weeks image comes from a round of the Ulster open moto x championship. Hope you enjoy this unusual look at moto x.
Thank you for visiting again, see you next week.
Not far from where I live there is a Moto X track, today the Temple Motorcycle Club where running a youth meeting. It’s the first time I have been to a off road race in twenty years. I use to race in my teens but I think a couple of sun’s have burnt themselves out since then. We have had great weather this week and today it continued, so with the camera gear packed I walked over to the meeting. I can’t tell you who are in the photos has I did not have an event program. So here’s a few photos from today.
Love the expression on the young racers face standing beside the flag marshal.
Plenty of big air time off the jumps and in case you don’t notice I’ll point out the dust.
Getting artistic here, I focus on the post and then turn off the auto-focus on the lens.
You get a nice out of focus action shot.
Number 56 provided some great action.
A close up of a young teenager.
Had to do a B&W one.
Did I tell you about the dust. The racing was called off with 5 or 6 races still to be run due to the dust and wind. Visibility around the track got so bad it became unsafe for the riders to continue. So I’ll leave you with my final shots.
Thank you for visiting and feel free to comment, likes or dislikes.

Where this photograph was taken was the entrance to where Johnnie Magee lived in the year 1900 in the town land off Carricknaveagh. Below is a link to what happen here in the early morning of 27th January 1900.
