Samuel Beckett Bridge in Colors

September 03, 2017  •  1 Comment

One of the first images on my list to capture in Dublin was the Samuel Beckett Bridge during the blue hour. Well, what you see in this post is the result. The Liffey River runs through the eastern part of Dublin and there are a series of bridges along the river that connect both sides of the city. The Samuel Beckett Bridge is one of the most unique of all of the bridges. The bridge itself is a very modern structure and I think that a photograph of this bridge must also include the very modern convention centre. The convention centre is the building with the neon lights seen through the support structure of the bridge. I slowed down the shutter speed and timed the picture so as to capture the streak of the car lights, and, in doing so, created a sense of motion in the image. As far as timing that night...well, let's just say I didn't quite do my homework. Sunset was at around 10 PM that evening so I arrived at location around 9:00 to set up. It was in the month of June and not only was sunset late, but the blue hour was even later than normal. The blue hour finally arrived about an hour and a half after sunset and I began shooting well over two hours after arriving.....I think it was worth the wait!
