More Snow…

22 12 2010

Snow in Dublin, eh?

Y’know yerself, 5 inches in Ireland and buses veer wildly out of control on the roads, pedestrians flail in panic on somewhat iced grounds before meeting their eventual, inevitable fate. Thankfully, a brave soldier like myself ventured out there yesterday to Johnstown Park and I managed to claw my way back home. And with some picture too!

 

 

 

 

 

Better get going again. …I’m just going outside, and I may be some time…





Snow in Finglas, 2/12/2010

2 12 2010

You know what? Auld Shakin’ Stevens had it sussed. Snow WAS falling all around me. Children were indeed playing – and having fun. So I ventured out for a walk around Johnstown Park in Finglas today. It was gorgeous – and despite the knackers with maligned jaws tossing snowballs at passing cars, it was pretty pleasant to walk about in too. Glad I ‘braved it’ now. And I even added snow there to the ‘site for the time that’s in it.

All images shot at ISO 2,500, f2 shutter speed 800-2000 with 85mm 1.8 (except shot 4-shot with 24-70mm f2.8)

Only got access for two songs tonight – two songs with bright red and neon-blue lights. And strobe lighting. Oh, and dry-ice. Worst nightmare.┬áThankfully I got some decent shots and most were savable in Photoshop. I got a good haul, so expect a little bit more soon.

It was a weird night; the band were at the back of the stage, except for Maxi Jazz himself, so it meant i’d very little options on who to shoot and when. The 85mm wasn’t long enough for most of the shots, so the above are crops, for the most part. That said they look pretty decent – another testament to the quality of the D700. That camera makes me look better than I really am.

And I chanced my arm at HDR for the first time too:
Lemme know what you think. I tried to keep it within reason (no halos, reasonably believable!)
