Donadea

As if an excuse was needed to bring the bike out for a spin on a somewhat pleasant Sunday, we ended up at Donadea forest, as did much of the rest of Kildare as it turned out. No sooner had we walked into the park than I was bitten by something very large and orange coloured yet even fearing an almost certain agonising death I soldiered on to put some 1’s and 0’s on the memory card. It turned out to be a lovely day down there and the threat of rain was just that and nothing more. Of course, every time you go to the woods, a wood elf jumps into the frame and completely throws off your auto focus. Inevitable.

X100 use update for anyone that’s interested; I’ve forgotten where my 5D is…

Seasons Changing

Seasons Changing
Further evidence, as if the cold and darker evenings weren’t proof enough, that the seasons are changing. Depths of winter are closing in fast and hey, there are only (insert ever decreasing number here) more shopping days left until Christmas! We were last along this road when everything was lush and green and it’s fantastic to see it again in various shades of browns, coppers and golds. If you’re in the area, I’d strongly suggest a drive down there.
