Light trails under the High Street Bridge

Red and white light trails of passing cars under the High Street Bridge in Cork.

Cars go up and down the South Link Road underneath the High Street Bridge in Cork.

The bridge was built in 1984, to replace another bridge that crossed the Bandon railway line that stood there since 1850!

Light trails and Christmas lights

Christmas lights and light trails from passing traffic.

There’s a four lane highway through Malaga but in December and January they have great decorations over the street.

The perfect time to take some long exposure shots of passing traffic!

Loading the containers

Loading a container ship in Malaga Harbour. The sun has already set but there’s a lovely glow in the sky!

Trying something new this time. You’ll probably have the visit the site to get the full effect. I’ll be uploading these images to Instagram shortly.

As before, these images were cut up with the convert command:

Birds enjoying the sunrise

Two birds sitting on a TV ariel on a house, as the sun rises behind them casting lovely colours on the sky.

A simple sunrise this morning. Two birds sitting on an ariel high up over the house had a great vantage point of the lovely colours in the sky.

Dos cervezas por favor

Someone carrying two one litre glasses of beer through a crowd

Beer carried through a busy crowd in a market. Only a few drops of liquid dropped out of the glasses too! A guy behind him had a selection of tapas for wherever they were going!

Malaga after the sun set

A wide angle view of the sun set, reflected in the water.

If the sky is right, Málaga harbour has some stunning sunsets. The colours of the sky are reflected in the waters of the harbour. The industrial and urban buildings on the far shore make for pleasing silhouettes defined by the setting sun.

La Capilla del Puerto de Málaga

A small church at one end of a shallow pool.

The chapel of the port of Málaga sits right in the middle of a now busy tourist area. It’s flanked by expensive restaurants, with towering apartment blocks behind it for tourists.

A review on Google maps (and Tripadvisor) is enlightening.

This is the Chapel of the Port of Malaga. Erected as an oratory in 1531 further out in the port area, but moved closer inland, brick by brick in 1719 and inaugurated as a chapel a few years later. It was used to say mass for seamen who were often extremely religious due in part to their dangerous profession. It’s a very old building and when juxtaposed against the modernity of Malaga Port, seems oddly out of place, yet all the more beautiful. Not a must see, but worth a detour if in the port area.

I can’t comment on how accurate that review is, as I couldn’t find any “official” page about the chapel, at least in English.
