Shandon Bells from Afar

Shandon Bells from Afar

The steeple of St. Anne’s Church towers over the surrounding streets as seen from Coburg Street, Cork last night.

I laboured over this photo. I could not get the shade and colour of the houses in the middle-background right for quite a while. Sometimes it was too bright, or too blue, or too dark, or just not right. Only after I left it for a few hours and came back did I recreate what I saw last night.

View on Camden Quay

Camden Quay in Cork City with the north side of the City behind it. St. Anne’s (or Shandon Bells) and the Catholic North Cathedral in the background.

Loved the light when I saw this scene. The setting sun cast shadows on the buildings and reflected off the church steeples.

It’s almost noon and I’m at the top of Patrick’s Hill taking photos of the Northside of Cork City. Pictured is St. Anne’s in the foreground, the County Hall in the background and lots in between!

Didn’t have time to work on any shots from yesterday. Too much to do.
