April began with a four day weekend due to the Easter Holidays. Naturally, I was out with my camera.
On the Saturday, I headed to Belvoir Park Forest. Before Lockdown, I hadn’t been to Belvoir Park Forest in ages, so I rediscovered it, if you will.
I’d been a couple of times before, but the weather was usually too wet or too dull, so the photos weren’t great.
This time around, I had some early morning sunshine that I took advantage of.
I had planned to use my time off over Easter to do my monthly visit to Cavehill.
The plan was to go on Easter Tuesday as I assumed that Saturday, Sunday and Monday would be rammed, Tuesday would be a bit quieter. You know, the whole Trying Not To Get Covid Thing.
It turned out to be an inspired decision. Not only was there not a lot of people about, but it snowed. Yes, snow in April.
Cavehill in snow was photos I always wanted, and I was not disappointed by my trip to McArt’s Fort.
On my way up, I did ask myself what I was doing, but it was all worth it when I got to the top.
However, next time it snows like that, i’ll head to Lisnabreeny Hill, in the interest of balance.
Cregagh Glen and Lisnabreeny Hill was where I headed next the following weekend, not in snow but in sunshine.
April saw me get my first Street Art photos of the year, a trip up to Shankill Road to see some new pieces painted outside Spectrum Centre and a piece by Dan Kitchener at the top, near Woodvale Park.
