I hadn’t been in a while, so I thought i’d use a football free Saturday to make a long awaited return visit to Giant’s Ring, at Sunrise.

Ok, well, just after Sunrise.

With the recent wave of decent Sunrises and Sunsets, I thought i’d go for it and drag myself out of bed.

My last visit to Giant’s Ring wasn’t an enjoyable one, in June 2021.

It was very untidy and unkempt, stingy nettles all over the place.

Not particularly nice, especially when it was shorts weather.

Other walks took priority, but such a negative impression meant that Giant’s Ring never came into consideration.

Fifteen months on, I thought i’d give it another try.

Arriving as the sun was rising, I was straight out with my camera, getting shots as I made my way across the field towards the path that leads to Terrace Hill Garden.

My photos were added by having some light frost on the ground.

The good news is, that Sunrises are going to be later and later over the next few months, so there’s more chance of catching some more.

I did my usual route, starting off at Giant’s Ring, then to Terrace Hill Gardens, on to Minnowburn then finally through Edenderry back to Giant’s Ring.

As the sun had just risen, there was a lovely glow on the grass, making for perfect shooting conditions.

It might just be me, but I seem to enjoy Giant’s Ring more in the Winter.

At some point over the next few months, I intend to make a return visit, but in reverse, starting at Minnowburn then working my way to Giant’s Ring.

Ideally, this would be at Sunrise or Sunset. We shall see.
