    A visit to Killinthomas wood Rathangan Co Kildare. Sunday 21st April 2013

    How about a film photographers visit to Killinthomas Wood in Rathangan Co Kildare. Sunday morning 21st April, its a good location a really beautiful and peaceful location. Good for general photography and around this time of year you have the Bluebells and some wild garlic so nice for some colour work. There is also some urban decay to be photographed in a building next door ( if its still there). Some details here http://iwtkildarebranch.wordpress.co...nthomas-woods/. We can check out Rathangan which is close by for a coffee shop and agree a time and meeting place in advance. Parking is free.

    Looks good Eddie, I'm in once I'm not working but looking good so far, I may pick up some Kodak Ektar for those bluebells.

    I do a lot of my trees from there, its a good location, lots of good stuff to shoot. Plenty of parking too....

    The abandoned bord na mona camp is still there, often with unusual animals - llamas the last time I was there - but there are big signs up saying no entry etc. I think someone has it rented and as a result doesn't want every tom dick and harry in there.

    There are a few pubs in Rathangan, which I'm sure do food, especially on a Sunday. The forest is a mix of large conifers and broad leaves, mainly ash with good runs of clear forest floor and brush. The whole site is laid out with paths with overhanging trees. I have done a good few portraits in there, lovely overhead soft light coming down. There are a couple of bluebell locations, and at least one or 2 with a mix of bluebells and wildgarlic (white). Tough to get the colour balance right though sometimes!!

    Searcher can try and find his lost lee filters!!!!

    A good location Eddie, with a lot to offer as Fran says. I have only been once before, at the time of the wild garlic last year, and yes I believe I left a pouch of filters in the undergrowth! They were getting on a bit and needed to be replaced anyway - but I'd not be too surprised if they are still there...

    Cheers

    I might join you, if my jetlag isn't too bad—I return from US on 20th. It would be nice to see you guys, especially as I'm missing the print showing.
