Photographer's Note

Short break from Southern America.
I am actually trying to avoid uploading photos from Ireland as I don’t want them to dominate my gallery, but I wanted to share with you a result of my yesterday’s blue hour walk. I have purchased recently a new telelens with the hope that it will help me to produce some more original views from Dublin. I have in mind some particular places and this is the first one of them.

The idea was to capture this huge dome hanging over a line of the typical Georgian townhouses. I have presented the church already on TE, it is located in an area called Rathmines. HERE is the link to that photo where you can also read more about the church and the area. To be able to catch a close up of this dome from a distance I had to use a telelens. I have used something between 200-300mm. In theory this view would be great when captured during the day but it is facing north which means it is always against the sun.

I think the lens did fine but the place was not uniformly lit which means that some areas stayed in the deeper shade and therefore are more noisy that the others. Bright street lights cause a mess, which could be acceptable to certain level, but here they have passed a critical mass and introduced too much mess.

I was lucky to capture one more typical element: a yellow-blue double decker bus which is commonly used by Dublin Bus Authority. Behind the dome you may see a silhouette of a large but not steep hill. These are already the Wicklow Mountains which are south from Dublin.
