THE SOULS OF THE TREES – EBONY AND OAK BY MERCE CANADELL
Photographed using an iPhone 12 Pro Max plus the Halide App.
Last Monday I visited the Botanic Gardens to the indoor section of the Sculpture In Context exhibition and was told to come back at the weekend as public access was not possible on weekdays. Today, Sunday 10 October 2021, I visited again to be informed that it is closed on Sundays … I must admit that I was under the impression that the weekend included Sunday.
Anyway, as I decided to walk around the gardens using my iPhone 12 Pro Max.

She has been in Ireland since 2002.
