By David Young

Northern Ireland photographer Gavin McKay is basking in the glow of worldwide exposure after one of his photographs was chosen to form part of a worldwide showcase on world social media channel Instagram.

The superb picture taken at Castlewellan maze has already been seen over 600,000 times, with thousands of positive comments posted online about the image.

Freelance photographer Gavin (45) - who has 53,000 followers on Instagram, said it was the first time a Northern Ireland image had appeared on Instagram's main image showcase.

"I've had lots of comments from people asking where the picture was taken - so it's great exposure," the Castlewellan man told the Belfast Telegraph last night.

"It's as big as it gets.

"It's what everyone aims for."
