Autumn in Ireland is my absolute favourite time of the year for taking photos. When the leaves on the trees start to take on their seasonal colours the landscape takes on a beautiful sheen of red and gold. But it’s not just the trees, and the leaves that make Autumn special. It’s the light too. The Autumn light in Ireland is beautiful. The slow change of the seasons starts to bring a warm and golden light to the country as the sun is lower and lower in the sky.
On a sunny Saturday morning I spent a little time walking around the quiet streets of the city around Adelaide road, The National Concert Hall, Hatch Street and Fitzwilliam Road. The low sun was reflecting off the windows on one side of the street onto the buildings on the other side, creating some wonderful dappled light patterns. These patches of light turn an otherwise boring facade into an interesting tapestry of colour and light.
