The world was looking pretty gorgeous this morning and I was tempted to stop a few times on the way to work. I passed up a few really good locations. I did eventually stop as I passed Griffith park – it was too cold for roses, but I stopped to smell them anyway. The car was telling me it was -4 degrees, but that didn’t deter the ducks from nestling their downy bottoms into the river. It did encourage me to nestle myself back into the cozy car pretty quickly though.
I see a lot of beautiful sights (and plenty of ugly ones too) on my daily commute. A 50 mile round-trip through the countryside of Meath, Dublin city and the coast at Sandymount. It takes 35 minutes each way on the bike, but I normally allow myself 30 minutes or less, so there’s rarely time to stop. I’m not saying last night’s sunset was the best I’ve seen, by a long shot, but it was quite a nice one in front of me as I crossed the East Link and headed up the quays, and for a change, I did stop and take a few shots.
