The weather has certainly been a great consolation at the moment. 30 degrees in Melbourne yesterday and, while today is overcast, doors are open and the happy sounds of industry come from down the road.

“Does the sun ever shine over there?”, my Flickr friend, Billie in California once asked. Ireland is certainly a land of magical shadows and mists, but having looked at the photos tagged “Ireland” on Photographedublin, I have to admit that my palette is of a Stygian darkness that even the early Romantics would have found a bit oppressive.

As a result, I started jacking up saturation to make shots, even taken on dull December days, look cheerful.
Somehow they just look unreal…

Dusk in Winter
