It's funny how sometimes something can be right under your nose and yet you don't notice it. The keys you've set down that you can't find, that someone else can come in and see straight away. As my wife will tell you, all too often that is me. The glasses you're looking for that you've out on top of your head. Yes, guilty of that one too.

And what about the glorious volcanic cliff top walk, full of stunning reveals of epic precipitous columnar cliffs,  that was right along the north coast all your life, but that you never really knew about?

To my shame, I was guilty of that - up until about 18 months ago when I got an invitation to photograph a walking tour along all five majestic miles from Dunseverick to the main Causeway. It was then that my eyes were opened, and I realised what had been hidden there my whole life, just waiting to be explored.

Since then, I've tried to make up time exploring this amazing coastal walk way. And it has never failed to disappoint!

So I was delighted to partner with the good folks at Walk NI to help spread the good news of this amazing place, just round the corner from the famous Causeway that attracts people from all over the world.

In today's Belfast Telegraph, Walk NI have produced a walking guide for ten great autumn walks across the length and breadth of Northern Ireland. My beloved Mournes features, as do places for across the Province.

But I was particularly pleased to have one of my photos from that first tour featured to help promote the Causeway Cliff top path - deemed to be walk number one (of course!)

Do why not grab a copy today and find out about it and the other places that perhaps you haven't quite yet discovered?

In fact, this wasn't the first time I worked with Walk NI to promote this path. Last summer, Walk NI produced a pdf guide to walking the Causeway Coast and Glens. And this time, it's a picture of yours truly gracing the front cover, enjoying an epic sunset at Hamilton's Seat (I feel a whole new career as a back model opening up!)

We are very lucky in Northern Ireland. There are so many gems out there waiting to be explored - and perhaps uncovered by you for the first time...

Now, as for those car keys. Have you tried looking on top of your head for them?!
