Photowalk addiction

Having returned home for a few days and really missing my weekly photowalk, I decided to take Sunday afternoon to go on one…

I headed for the city centre, and I was pleased to see a great crowd of people taking advantage of the beautiful day. I also found out that there was a lot going on that day.

Lots of events ranging from a march for peace and human rights all the way to a flea market and a Sicilian food fair.

Also a good chance to visit the most iconic places of the city center…

Always nice to be back…

What do you get when you mix three photographers, a very early start, a lighthouse and the desire to shoot the sunrise?

You get a lot of fun! And wet… you get very wet.

So, we decided to take advantage of the bank holiday and go shoot the sunrise at Poolbeg. We met at around 5 am and headed out for our trip.

You can't even tell if it's good or bad weather...

“Luke, I am your father.”

It was a windy morning and we were very aware that we were going to suffer the wind while on the South Wall.

Walking the trail in the dark was an interesting experience and let us see the city and the bay in a very different way.

When we got to the Great South Wall the wind was stronger than when we started (way stronger…), but we decided go on anyway.

So we went onto the wall to get as close as possible to the lighthouse. We stopped about halfway through the wall and got our gear ready and started waiting for sunrise (shooting, of course).

The wind got even stronger and we started getting hit by the waves…

But we kept shooting waiting for the sun to show up, which it didn’t… It turns out the clouds were too thick for us to see anything. No sunrise, not even the sun.

Even if we failed our goal, we still had a great time and a few good pictures. I’ll go back for the sunrise…
