I probably shouldn’t have even looked at one of these. Now I’m sad. Want one.

Been a while since I posted any new aerial stuff. Here’s Drumbo Round Tower, and the graveyard it resides in. It’s an ancient tower, from somewhere between the 5th and 10th centuries.

I lived here for 5 years or so. Still miss the area.

Today’s aerial shots are from Nendrum Monastery on Mahee Island in Strangford Lough. 
It’s a 5th Century monastery, and was excavated in the 1920s - the finds there are in the Ulster Museum, but I’d really recommend a trip to the site - it’s really beautiful there, as you can see.

I also went to St John’s Point today. My plan was to take some aerial video footage of the lighthouse, but the windspeed was just too high to risk it. This turned out nice though.

And here’s another shot of Inch Abbey, which gives you a good idea of the size and general layout of the monastery. #mavicpro

So this is Inch Abbey. It’s a ruined (obviously) monastic site just outside Downpatrick. It was built around 800AD, and was plundered a few times by Vikings, the rascals. #mavicpro

The Giant’s Ring. It’s a Neolithic henge monument just outside Belfast, dating back to around 2700BC (so that’s before the Pyramids, antiquity fans). #mavicpro #drones

Straight down onto Chez-Ron. I’ve no idea whats going on with the roof on our front dormer windows. Probably should have another flight and go a lot lower for inspection. #drone #mavicpro
