A Few More From Castlederg Castle Park

The castle which is the main focus of the park.

 

A few more photos from a walk at the end of November around Castlederg Castle Park, when we got our first taste of winter.  The park is at the bottom of the valley, beside the River Derg, where the cold air lingered all day, and the frost and fog never cleared.  Perfect weather to try for some photos with a more subdued colour palette, although there were still some vibrant tones here and there too.

The right conditions can make even the most familiar places seem novel and worth exploring with new eyes.
