Another seaside location with a rocky foreshore, but this time on the other side of the island of Ireland, and yet another island! Coney Island, Ardglass, Co. Down from the Lawrence Collection looks like a very pleasant place to spend a summer, and the shot has so much of interest in both the foreground and out there in the background! There are so many Coney Islands about the world so yet another one should be no surprise, but this seems more inhabited than most – apart from the one in the US, I suppose?
