Im delighted to be able to announce that Alan Geddes has agreed that his photographs may be used on NIFerrySite.  Alan’s photographs are mainly taken within the Belfast harbour area, and often from an elevated position, giving them a perspective not often seen elsewhere.  Alan’s photographs will continue to be added to many of the profiles (and also the former ferries photo feature) in the coming weeks – a number have already been added.  In the meantime, why not check out Alan’s Flickr page.  Don’t forget you can also find links to the flickr accounts (where applicable) of the other photographers featured on this site on the links page.
