Ha'Penny blue hour

This is the Ha'Penny Bridge in Dublin, Ireland which straddles the River Liffey.  It's not a big bridge, as you can tell, but it has a long and important history in the town, dating back from 1816.  I'm no historian, but that sounds pretty old to me.   :-)

I love shooting bridges, because I find they offer some interesting possibilities for photography.  Plus, they go over water (well, normally at least!) and that means I might get some nice reflections, which is another thing I really like.

I got up early one morning in Dublin to wander the Temple Bar district and take shots.  I love that time of day because I am normally alone, enjoying scenes like this free from the distractions and noise of tourists and pedestrians. 

By the way, this is a single long exposure instead of HDR.
