More from Northern Ireland. Is there anywhere better than the North Antrim coast when it’s wild and windy?

Game of Thrones

Been shooting some landscape work around Game of Thrones locations in Northern Ireland. Mostly using PhaseOne kit, but fortunately for this one I was using an old Nikon D3X – they take some battering those cameras!!!
