Dublin's Docklands underwent significant, almost complete redevelopment in the 2000s with the biggest names in the tech industry still building and locating in the area today.

Here in Grand Canal Square the public realm was designed by landscape architect Martha Schwartz and the choice of red paving blocks and these tall red glow sticks were designed deliberately to give a red carpet effect coming from Daniel Libeskind's 2,000-seater theatre.

On the right is the distinctive chequered pattern of the Anantara The Marker Hotel.

This is now a good-looking part of the city and the redevelopment has brought a lot of life into the area that was run down for many decades at the end of the 20th century.

Dublin's Samuel Beckett Bridge at Night

Dublin's Samuel Beckett Bridge was installed in 2009, it celebrates 10 years this year of spanning the River Liffey and is dedicated to the Nobel Prize for Literature winning writer and playwright, Samuel Beckett.

Interestingly the architect of the Samuel Beckett Bridge Santiago Calatrava has already designed a bridge for Dublin dedicated to another of the city's famous writers, James Joyce.

This week saw Panoramic Ireland, that's me - a real person, photographing on Dublin's River Liffey on another of my one-to-one Dublin photo tours.

We covered some of the city sights before finishing up along the River Liffey, an exciting part of the city in which to photograph.

Using a tripod at this time of night is necessary, the long exposures required mean that the camera should be solid and steady and protected from movement.

The night lights of the various buildings, including the hoops on the Convention Centre, add to the atmosphere of the urban night time environment. These cityscapes are something that changes a lot along the river and through time but I'm sure you will find it to be a colourful experience.

T.N. from Australia was on this tour with me and this is what he had to say:

Darren is a terrific guide and a very kind and personable host. He took me on a great walking tour of Dublin City where we explored and took some great photos of several sights off the tourist trail. Darren is genuinely passionate about Dublin city as he is about his craft and he was very generous with sharing his abundant knowledge and experiences. I had a really enjoyable day and took many tips away with me that I will apply in my photography going forward. I highly recommend this experience to anyone at all, local or from abroad, who is interested in photography and is after a unique personalized experience photographing Dublin city.
