Sitting at home on a Sunday morning, needing to get out for a few hours despite the cold and the threat of rain. Wiclow? Kildare? Wait, we haven’t been to the Botanic Gardens in ages! Every time we go up there, I seem to get the great notion to try something new. “This time, I …
Been on a bit of an analog thing of late, thanks in no small part to the quantity of velvia scanned some weeks back. No updates in a while because I started a new job a couple of weeks ago and outside all of the settling in, trying to remember as many new names as …
An obvious plant in the Botanic Gardens.
It’d been so long since I last used the macro lens, I forgot what it was capable of when focusing manually.
Sculpture in the Botanic Gardens. One of the lesser barmy ones.
From the second Botanic Gardens photowalk that took place earlier today. Weather was quite a bit milder than the previous walk. The macro lens that I haven\’t used in what seems to be about 2 years came out to play again.
Getting ready for the Botanic Gardens photowalk later this month. It’ll be a bit different than the January walk. A few less inches of ice and snow for starters.
From a little bit earlier in the year at the Botanic Gardens photowalk. Chubby little fecker.
I can’t get home tonight, or tomorrow night or possibly the night after. There are places I’d rather be and people I’d rather be there with. Also, happy 2nd birthday glasseyalley
I’m always looking for new ways to photograph the glass roof of the greenhouses at the Botanic Gardens. I usually come home with more photos of the bloody roof than I do of the plants. Imagine, going to a botanic garden to take photos of plants?!? Madness!
Takeoff from the high wall of the vine border and off to the branches of a nearby tree.
The snow covered entrance to one of the glasshouses during the January photowalk at the Botanic Gardens. Permission for Perambulation Pending .
The snowy, icy, massively fun photowalk at the Botanic Gardens in Dublin earlier today. It was cold and somewhat slippy but a small price to pay to come away with a collection of photos of ‘everything with snow on it’. Thanks to all who participated, hope to see you all and more on the February …
Just like everyone else, I finally got a shot of these protective little gnomes in their shed at the vegetable garden in Dublin’s Botanic Gardens. They seem to be quite popular and word on the street has it that they’re in for a surprise.
Under lock and key at Kilmacurragh in Wicklow. So much more interesting than your average padlock!
Another from Kilmacurragh, that previously hidden spot in Wicklow.
I re-discovered a love of my Sigma 30 f1.4 over the weekend at Kilmacurragh arboretum. Found the place on discover Ireland website and took a spin down. It\’ll be worth another trip when things start to bloom.
Trees, like some you’d see in a horror film, standing in the grounds of the Botanic Gardens in Dublin. I feel that before too long, I’ll become an authority on all things botanic and gardeny. Not a bad thing perhaps?
Last one of the year, a quick post while getting ready to go out on New Years Eve. Also possibly the last one of the roof of the Glasgow Botanic Gardens I’ll post for a while. I’ll try to keep my roof fetish down to a dull roar in future. So, 2008 is on the …
The wonderful, the marvelous, the often copied but never bettered (or battered either) ceiling fish of Glasgow! These monsters are swimming around just inside the door of what I would call the main building of the botanic gardens.. or are they hanging from the ceiling? I haven’t quite made my mind up yet.
