The Lispole Viaduct

The Lispole Viaduct

If you’ve been to Dingle you’ve probably passed through the village of Lispole. It’s on that long fairly straight road where the speed limit is 60km/h. There are lovely views from the top of the hill overlooking the village and this viaduct sits behind the petrol station at the bottom of the village.

I’d seen the viaduct many times over the years but (I think) never stopped to photograph it until 2 weeks ago. According to a nearby sign it was part of the Dingle – Tralee railway line which ran from 1891 to 1953. An important part of the long community so long ago.

Abandoned Family Home in El Chorro National Park

Abandoned Family Home in El Chorro National Park

As seen from El Caminito del Ray Our guide explained that a family lived here for many generations until after work stopped on a nearby power plants. The property was occupied long before power plant workers were seen in the valley and while they were there they made life easier for the people living here. The house is very far from the nearest village and the occupants subsisted on farming until they started trading with workers.
Apparently workers stopped walking El Caminito del Ray in the 1970s(?) and life became more difficult for the people living there. Within a generation or two the building was abandoned.

Some of the final moments of the 1965 movie, Von Ryan’s Express, were shot near here on the railway behind this house.

Morning Sunrise over Whistler

There aren’t many sunrise photos around Whistler, probably because the town is built between two mountains, east and west, blocking the light of the new sun on the horizon.

This is sort of near Whistler, on the far side of Alta Lake, with a 300mm lens pointing roughly north where the glow of the rising sun appeared for about 2 minutes on an overcast dreary morning last week.
