Time for Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup and the letter is W and Weather. Recently my nephew and I went down  to Donaghadee for a walk and all these photographs were taken within 20 minutes to show you how the WEATHER can change so suddenly in Northern Ireland.  In the first  image we have beautiful blue skies and the sun is shining directly on the Donagahadee Lighthouse. 

This image I took in the opposite direction and we  can now see clouds although the sun is shining on some of the houses on the other side of the bay.  

Below, now although the sun is shining on The Moat, but the clouds are now ominous 

Now I do not know whether you know this expression but in Northern Ireland we would say, “this boat WANTS a lick of paint”!   The next boat is in good nick and it is called WAVEHUNTERS.

Below we have these poles WRAPPED round in pink to remember 
Breast Cancer Awareness month. 

Below is my nephew in a lovely WOOL jacket WHO WAS unaware that I was taking this shot for my STREET PHOTOGRAPHY image.  He climbed up the steps on the pier WALL to see the WAVES.

I hope you enjoyed this post today.

I appreciate your visit and comments.


  1. I especially like the castleon the hill. Why does it look so brand new?

  2. Your pictures have been excellent in this series!

  3. We also use the expression ' a lick of paint'.
    Thanks for showing us the dramatic change in the skies too.

  4. Hello,
    Great collection of photos, I love the lighthouse and view of the bay. Take care, have a great weekend!

  5. Fine series of photos. I like the reflection of the lighthouse. I find the boat needing paint odd. There are no ore locks, and it isn't a row boat, and the transom is not designed for a motor. The only way to move this boat is a paddle? That is really odd. The Wavehunters looks dangerous.

  6. A lovely series of photos Margaret. Have a great weekend and take care.

  7. Beautiful! The first picture is the winner for me today.

  8. Weather here is crazy. Sunday it snowed and Monday I managed to get some city snow photos. By Wednesday everything was green again. It is currently 1C but Monday's forecast is 10C.

  9. I like lighthouse scenes and lighthouses. My sister collects lighthouse thing. You took a very nice picture of this one. And caught the water still enough for a good Reflection shot. A good extremes contrast disply for personal boats. The clouds are a fairly good predictor, forecaster ??, of the weather to come shortly.

  10. A wonderful post, and yes, the boat wants a lick of paint very badly.

  11. Great shots! I really like that lighthouse!
