Photographer's Note

This photo is a continuation of pictures presenting churches in Dublin. It was hard to take any shot in the evening because the gate was closed -I have put the tripod and camera on the other side of the fence trying to take a clean shot. Not much space for extra composition.

I remember when I once planned to take a blue hour photo in Zurich. I was waiting on a bridge for the city lights but they were not coming so I gave up and I decided to come back. And just on my way back the lights were switched on. But it was too late to get to the perfect spot in time. That is one of the photos which I took on that evening.
Last night something opposite happened. I arrived at a chosen spot and started some preparation, and just when the blue hour was supposed to start the lights illuminating the church went off. Fortunately I managed to take couple of shots, and one of them I present here.

Sandford Parish Church belongs to the Church of Ireland

From the
The first Dublin commission of Belfast firm Lanyon, Lynn and Lanyon, this little Italian Romanesque church replaced an earlier one of 1826. In 1880, the original galleries were removed and aisles added. The interior has a fine window by Harry Clarke dating from 1921.

I have no idea why the name contains Sandford. It is not to be confused with Sandyford which is a part of Dublin much more south from the city center.
This church is actually located in Ranelagh, a residencial area south of Dublin city center.
