Thursday Doors – More From Derry

Some more night photos from Derry City for this week’s Thursday Doors. I’ve featured this building before but in daylight and the door is actually a vibrant fire engine red colour. I love how metallic and coppery it looks in these images.

I didn’t edit theses shots at all, the coloured lights at the foot of the building gave this effect.

The sun had almost disappeared by the time I took these photos of the marina.

You can see the darkness creep in.

Eventually, the still water turned an inky black, perfectly reflecting the lights along the marina.

This large wooden carving is Manannan Mac Lír (Lyr) Son of the Sea, sculpted by artist Jim Hughes. Manannan is a major god in Celtic mythology and if you zoom in on the next image you will hopefully be able to read more about him.

Thanks for stopping by this week. You’ll find more Thursday Doors from around the world over on Norm’s blog.

    I love the lighting effect in those 1st two shots. It really does give the door a coppery glow. Nicely done 🙂

    Love your second capture – as if that big cloud comes rolling in above the water! Talking about water, wish you could see how after the rain, the water finds its way down to the bottom and form little rivers in the valleys – it’s magical! Have to come back another time to read your post below!

  9. I really like your first image of the harbor or marina. It feels painterly, and you got a star above the clouds! It looks like a star anyway.
