The tree in the wheat field

On the way to Rocky Bay last week we spotted this field so we just had to take a few photos! This is also the first photo I’ve used Affinity Photo on. The original image is below.

I used the inpainting tool in Affinity Photo to get rid of the branches on the left and a few other things. I did try the same in Lightroom but the clone and heal tools just didn’t work nearly as well. Affinity photo is easy to set up as an external editor in Lightroom, and it even supports 16 bit colour which is a big bonus when working on images!

Clontarf Bridge

Clontarf Bridge Closed for Repairs

Clontarf Bridge in Cork City is closed for two months as it undergoes major rehabilitation works worth €2.5m according to this Evening Echo article.

Tony O’Sullivan, senior engineer with Cork City Council’s roads department said they understood the disruption the bridge closure would cause, but had no alternative as major rehabilitation work is required.
“For the work to be carried out the bridge will have to be completely encapsulated with material to create factory-like conditions,” he said.
