Monthly Recap

Monthly Recap: December 2018


Trekking NI is now four months old (they grow up so fast, don’t they?) and we’ve had yet another few weeks packed full of great content, with contributions from photographers, poets and dog-walkers, among others. We have big plans for 2019 too, so stick with us!

For now, let’s take a look back on December 2018…


We welcomed along our next Photographer in Focus, Stephen Wallace of Hibernia Landscapes, who shared about his background in photography and gave budding shooters some useful tips. Jaime Collins also shared a great article about the Top 5 places to photograph in Northern Ireland – looking forward to more from these guys in future, I hope!

December certainly was a month for brilliant features! We had runners, hikers, photographers, path-makers, poets and dog-walkers, and all of it was top notch! Check them out below.

Thanks again for all your support throughout December, and during 2018 in general – it’s gone very fast, and we’ve loved seeing enthusiasm for the website grow. We have plenty more in store for 2019, so keep an eye on here and our social media outlets. And have a very Happy New Year!
