“Apex arching adamantine earth. Vaulting. Sky the keystone. Sea the springer.”
– SJ Mannion
Ballintoy is situated in one of the most picturesque parts of North Antrim between the Giants Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge and looks out to Rathlin Island and beyond to Scotland. As you come over the Knocksoghey Brae from Ballycastle or in from Whitepark Bay you are greeted by spectacular views, each one characterized by Ballintoy Church. The area around Ballintoy is exceptional for walking, the scenery is stunning and the locality steeped in history and folklore, a short walk from the village brings you to the sweeping curve of Whitepark Bay. It was while walking here that I came across the arch. The light was beautiful that evening and I managed to get several nice images.
