Daily Post: Snow Along The Canal, Birds in Flight, A Tram

A Moment in Time, November 28, 2010.

This was my Christmas card for 2010.
This was my Christmas card for 2010.

It doesn’t snow in Dublin very often, and when it snows it rarely stays on the ground for long. It had started snowing heavily overnight on November 28, 2010 and when I awoke, there was a fresh blanket of snow all over everything.

I made the most of morning. Among the locations I selected was along the LUAS tram line that follows the Grand Canal.

A man was feeding the birds and these were circling. Using my Canon EOS 7D with 200mm lens, I made a series of photos of an inbound LUAS Citadis tram heading toward the city center from Tallagh.

The birds in flight make an already unusual situation even more interesting. They add depth and life to a cold and frosty scene. The tram itself is almost incidental. Yet we can follow its progress along the canal, its tracks gradually descending in the distance.
