Romance at the Zoo

Not the usual date that comes to mind when you think of St Valentine's Day, but this year, Dublin Zoo offered a different way to spend a romantic morning with your loved one.  A romantic breakfast at the zoo and access to the animals including talks from the keepers prior to the zoo opening to the general public.  For the photographer trying to balance romancing his wife, entertaining our baby and photographing the animals, the major benefit from the trip was the additional space and access to the prime spots for viewing the animals without the crowds of people that you can get on a normal weekend.  Below are a few of my favourite shots of a giraffe, lowland western gorilla and baby Asian elephant all of which have been processed in a similar manner to achieve a consistency to the set.
