A photographer from County Tyrone has seen one of his photos become the cover image for the new Discover Bundoran brochure which was launched on Monday 9th of January in the new community centre in Bundoran, County Donegal.

Peter Mayne from Strabane took the striking image of his nephew Arran jumping off the Diving Boards at Roguey in the seaside town whilst on a day trip with some family last August.

Bundoran Tourism Officer Shane Smyth said: “We just fell in love with the photograph as soon as we saw it and knew it was the one we wanted to use on this year’s cover.

“It encompasses Bundoran perfectly – a fun family destination.”

Peter is an accomplished photographer and a huge fan of the Wild Atlantic Way – many shots of which can be found in his blog via his website www.petermaynephoto.com and on his Instagram account.

Peter attended the brochure launch in Bundoran where he was presented with a framed copy of the brochure cover.

Shane added: “We would like to thank Peter for granting us permission to use this fantastic image and we look forward to seeing more of his work very soon.”

Peter is a photographer and graphic designer who combines his love of travel, adventure and the outdoors with his extensive creative background of over 14 years, to explore, discover and capture beautiful images of beautiful places.

He has travelled and worked internationally as a freelance photographer/graphic designer for a variety of clients, employers and also for his own pleasure.
