I just wanted to share this new series of photographs that I have published on my Flickr page.
These shots were all taken just this week down in the South Wall and Poolbeg area of Dublin. I was down there on Tuesday morning quite early for some amazing winter sunshine, alright then it’s spring but it sure don’t fell like it. After a few hours slowly walking out towards Poolbeg Lighthouse I turned around to see that the weather was no longer being very kind to me as a mist descended over the moutains way beyond the Sandymount area. I can’t say I care that much about getting caught out in a rainstorm but I can tell you that my camera really doesn’t appreciate. So I hightailed it back to my transport for the day and sat there eating home made bread and drinking coffee from a flask that I had forgotten was in the car. An hour later and the sun it cometh back. I took myself off to Sandymount Strand then for another few hours before noticing a snow flake or two landing on my camera. I then turn around to realise just how far I had walked out on the beach towards The Pigeon House and it’s fair to say there was nowhere to hide now. At least this time I have a rain cover for my camera bag and once that was in place I just stood in the middle of a beach and enjoyed the snow. It’s not everyday you can enjoy a brief snowfall whist standing on a beach. So here’s the series of photographs from that eventful excursion.
