white mountains




These photographs were taken early this morning from my bedroom window. (They look better if you click to bring up to full screen size. ) The top photo is of the Cave Hill and Belfast City Centre (with Ravenhill Rugby Ground in the foreground), and the second is of Divis mountain and west Belfast. The snow seems to be vanishing already.....but more is predicted for later in the day.

Snow!!! No matter how much of a nuisance it may be, there really is a magic about it!

Good panoramic view. I'm a bit surprised at the scale--the city is large!!

That is a lovely view. I haven't seen the city that clearly from that side before, very surprised the west is so clear from all the way over there. :o)

What a lovely panoramic shot. I didn't know Belfast is that big.
And the snow...not for me, thank you.

Wow, amazing shot. I love snow - as long as it's on mountain tops ONLY.
Being in Canada, I really appreciate scorching hot summer days...
Very fit for the first day of spring!

Yes, Belfast is quite a big city - the population of the whole metropolitan is approximately 700,000. The city centre is small, but we have a young population (46% aged under 30), and the suburbs are expanding at quite a rate.
As you can see, the city is in a lovely setting - at the head of a lough, surrounded by hills.
