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.

Dublin's iconic Custom House seen here reflected in the city's calm River Liffey on a moody weather day.

The Custom House was built by Irish architect James Gandon and opened in 1791 and its function was to collect taxes or customs on goods being imported and exported through Dublin Port - and there were a lot of taxes applied.

Within a few decades the port area moved downstream and the Custom House was used for other purposes, today the port is built on reclaimed land in Dublin Bay.

Join Panoramic Ireland, that's me, on a photography tour in Dublin to learn more about the city and how to photograph urban scenes like the Custom House on Dublin's quays - find out more here.
