Special Post: Dublin’s St Patrick’s Day Parade, 2014.

History on the Streets of Dublin!

I made my annual pilgrimage to view and photograph Dublin’s famed St Patrick’s Day Parade. The theme was history! Yea!

Below are a sample of the hundreds of photos that I exposed with my Canon EOS 7D.

The parade is an opportunity to work with colour and motion to capture moments in history and burst of emotion.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Dublin

I made this image the other night using my Canon 7D with f2.0 100mm lens mounted on a miniature Gitzo tripod positioned on the wall near Islandbridge Junction—west of Heuston Station.

Dublin has lit many of its most prominent architecture for St Patrick’s Day. The Wellington Testimonial in the Phoenix Park is believed to be the tallest obelisk in Europe. In the mid-19th century, when the railway line was built below the park, engineers were concerned that if the line  passed to near the monument, it might undermine the massive structure. As a result the Phoenix Park tunnel is ‘S’-shaped, and swings to the west of the obelisk’s base.

I’ve posted a variety of recent images of Dublin, Ireland to a special page on Tracking the Light. See: Recent Images of Dublin Ireland listed on the third tier in the header.

I intend to update this page regularly with fresh images of Ireland’s capital city!

While not strictly related to railways, this will occasionally feature images of Irish Rail, LUAS, Railways Preservation Society Ireland, views of the canals and other relevant topics.

Keep an eye out for St Patrick’s Day images, on or after the day!
