Killiney Hill

Killiney Hill

The weather was mild and bright last Sunday, and I went for a walk to one of my local favourite places – Killiney (and Dalkey) Hill. The day was a bit too hazy for the sort of photos I wanted to take – but I ended up with a few anyway. The first one is of the Obelisk on Killiney Hill taken from Dalkey Hill.

The second is of a castle taken from near the Obelisk. Like most people around here – I know who lives there – but I’m not sayin’ 🙂 I’m sure you can guess though…..

More difficult to take than I expected. The wheel wasn’t turning very fast, and I found it hard to get a long enough exposure to get really good light trails. I suppose I should have used an ND filter – but didn’t have one with me (hadn’t really expected to need one for this !).
