Description Groomsport (in Irish: Port an Ghiolla Ghruama - Port of the gloomy fellow or gloomy servant) is a village two miles north east of Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. It is on the south shore of Belfast Lough and on the north coast of the Ards Peninsula. By the 17th century the village was known as Gilgroomsport and at this time, before Donaghadee became the main port for embarkation to Scotland. The village developed beside the natural sheltered harbour, between the shore, Ballymacormick Point and the rocky outcrop known as Cockle Island. The harbour is reputed to be of Viking origin and the beginnings of the small settlement can be traced to the ninth or tenth century.The shadows cast by the low Winter sun give the impression that a moment of tenderness is being shared as the 'figures' lean into each other and touch heads!
Stephen Maxwell, Bangor, County Down Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I returned to photography and the digital age in the early 2000s after a break of about 18 years. I enjoy the immediacy of digital photography and I am not averse to post production work on an image. I enjoy walking and travelling and have my camera with me a s a consequence of these activities. Photography is a means of relaxation and I enjoy it for itself. I am glad that others enjoy, comment upon and even purchase my work.
