Canal Bank Walk

One of my absolutely favourite places in Dublin City is on the banks of the Grand Canal between Portabello and Mount Street. It is a beautiful stretch of walkway, with leafy green trees and gorgeous benches. I spent a bit of time there recently in the gorgeous summer sunshine and I captured lots of photos of the place.

The Changing Look of the Canal

Dublin's grand canal is a picturesque spot all year around. I find myself taking photos here quite a few times during the year and I discovered that I have a photo of the canal taken from the same place for each season of the year. 

Grand Canal Dock at Night

It's been a while since I've taken any night shots of the city, and over the weekend I had the chance to take some pictures of the Grand Canal area after dark. Grand Canal dock is one of my favourite areas of the city, and the modern architecture combined with the lights and glass make for a great subject.

Grand Canal Dock, From the Other Side

I was walking in the Grand Canal dock area the other day and I noticed that the area around the theatre and the Marker Hotel looked really impressive when seen from across the water. I wouldn't normally be over this side, so it was good to see it from a different vantage for a change. Also, the buildings looked great in the fleeting moments of sunshine between the clouds.

On Your Bike

I was walking by the grand canal in the city on a beautiful summer Saturday, and I was struck by how many people were out, happily enjoying riding their bikes in the sunshine. And, taking the occasional rest to enjoy the scenery too.
