Hi all, I'm planning a little trip to the emerald isle possibly in July, but it would all depend on how easy it is to shoot there. I'm particularly interested in whether there are any high fences (hopefully not) and the general spotting locations. I'll probably do 3-4 days in DUB and 1-2 in SNN. What days are best?
TIA
Spence.

"The glass is VERY thick and is sometimes dirty. Never fear. If you have a decent camera, then you can get fine photos of the ramp etc."

I just remembered, what the link dosen't say is that the glass in the viewing gallery has a green tint and therefore all your photos would be rejected for colour,

Apart from all the technical issues with the photo, you can still see the colour cast,
hoped this helped!

I realized today I have a three hour layover in SNN on 6/15 while transferring from JFK to LHR and a five hour layover in DUB on 7/15 while transferring from MAD to JFK.

What's the shooting like from the terminals, besides the green tinted viewing gallery?

What a luck that Aer Lingus has a green scheme and that there is a lot of green in the landscape.. Big grin

Honestly, the windows are more than likely going to be really dirty!
But the America bound flights leave from a different part of the airport of which I have never been in.
But it is also likely that photography is forbidden as this is also the part of the airport where all the American army charter flights come through, so I would think that theres is some regulations in place!
Hoped this helped!

Conor.
