Thursday Doors – Belturbet by Night

This week’s Thursday Doors comes from Belturbet in county Cavan and features some shots taken late in the evening, without using flash. They turned out better than expected. This first one is of the main street with the town hall at the top.

There has been a lot of work done recently on this lovely old house and even the post office next door has had a bit of a make-over. It’s so nice to see these old buildings being preserved, I wonder what it will be used for – business or residential.

On my way to the river I took a photo of this derelict house. It now forms part of a walled garden but I’m glad that whoever owns the property kept the facade intact.

One of my favourite wee boats was moored at the marina. If you look closely, you might just make out a ‘living’ grass roof on it and a stovepipe. Next time I see it in daylight, I’ll take a clearer shot.

The sun was setting fast but I was determined not to use flash for my images so there was just enough light for one more shot. This next one is of the park, alongside the marina.

As always, thanks a mil for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this walk around Belturbet by night and if you’d like to continue on a tour of international Thursday Doors, you’ll find links to them in the comments over on Norm’s Blog.
