Steeped in Victorian history and experiencing an ever-evolving cultural scene, Belfast is a treasure trove of historic sites, architecture and landmarks from the past and present.
Belfast has always had an affinity with street art. Murals tell the story of our political history; while new, emerging street art depicts Belfast’s artistic and cultural scene today.
Belfast is nestled between rolling hills and an expansive lough, making for stunning natural landscapes around and within the city. Capture the glory of a sunrise on Cave Hill; or snap the beauty of the city’s many parks.

Sometimes you get lucky, and sometimes you have to make your own luck. A quick run (literally) up cavehill yesterday resulted in a bit of both. Too late for the actual sunrise and with not much time before I had to get to work, it looked like there was too much cloud to get anything of any use. I thought I'd go for the walk anyway and try some compositons and self timer shots since I had a free morning. This was set up to take a shot every 10 seconds so I could run over to Napoleons nose for a crack at a selfie. I had no idea what exposure settings to use as I'd be too far from the camera if any light broke through, so i had to bracket and just hope I could recover it in post. Just as I started towards the edge, the sun decided to rise above the clouds. A massive part of landscape photography is just about getting out the door and getting yourself there and then hoping luck does the rest. #lovebelfast #documentbelfast #bestofbelfast #explorebelfast #belfast #discoverni #insta_ni #visitni #captureni #pocket_ireland #landscape #landscapephotography #insta_ireland #irish_daily #ukpotd #insta_daily #stayandwander #explorers_of_light #amazing_shots #amazing #raw_ireland #niexplorer @tourismireland
