Photographer's Note

shot during a clear sunny weekend at the Ards Forest Park. its been awhile that i got a chance to go out and shoot again.

History: In the Plantation of Ulster, which followed the flight of the Earls in 1607, the lands of Ards and the surrounding territory were granted by the British Crown to Turlough Ó O Boyle on the condition of his continuing loyalty. Following that family's part on the Irish side in the 1641 Insurrection, the O Boyles lost their lands, which by 1700 had passed to the Wray family. The latter remained in possession until 1782 when the lands were sold to Alexander Stewart, brother of the then Marquis of Londonderry. The Stewart family held Ards until 1926, and the Irish Land Commission finally broke the great estate up following its acquisition of the land.
