Belfast was looking gorgeous in the early morning haze today. I took a stroll round the river Lagan to the Titanic Quarter and went a bit snap happy with my new gadget (a recent Birthday present).
Here’s just a few of the pics plus a little slide show of a handful more, hope you enjoy.
Instantly recognisable, the Harland and Wolff cranes, Samson and Goliath. This is Goliath up close, the smaller and eldest of the 2.
It was quite eerie standing on the slipways, particularly at such a quiet, early hour. Only with the help of the Titanic Belfast Museum could I even come close to imagining the enormity of the actual vessel taking shape and coming to life right where I stood. Now a reminder of the many lives lost in such a tragic way.
An absolute modern day Icon and recently crowned the best tourist attraction in the world, Titanic Belfast is a stunning piece of architecture.
