The Weir in Ballincollig Regional Park

The Weir in Ballincollig Regional Park

On a particularly foggy morning in December 2002 I wandered around Ballincollig Regional Park. I photographed the weir that morning in the mist. Wasn’t much to be heard except the rushing of the water.

Some fifteen years later the centre of the weir would collapse. The OPW may rebuild it at a cost of over €1m. Hopefully that happens.

Love on the Lee

Love on the Lee

St Patrick’s Bridge in the background, pictured from Mary Elmes Bridge. A love lock on the fence but thankfully there aren’t many on it. Love locks are a serious problem for structures as they add unplanned weight.

Happy holidays! Hope you had a nice day today!

Lights on the Lee

Lights on the Lee

Lights shine on the River Lee from the new office buildings along the quays. One lone light from a boat on the river makes itself known, not to be outdone by it’s land based cousins.

Blue Cork

Blue Cork

Looking across the River Lee towards the Crawford College Of Art And Design next to Nano Nagle Bridge.

This was back in August 2019 when construction of the Event Center hadn’t eve.. oh wait, it still hasn’t started, but at least the red brick student accommodation on South Main Street was built.

Up until about an hour ago this has sat in my “to be published” collection as a black and white image but then I switched to colour, played around with it a little more and I prefer this.

Gougane Barra at Sunrise

Gougane Barra at Sunrise

Gougane Barra, where the River Lee rises and the location of a monastery Saint Finbarr built in the 6th century. A modern chapel, called St Finbarr’s Oratory dates back to 1903.

The image above is a HDR panorama of 9 photos merged together in Lightroom and is a result of a very early visit with Blarney Photography Club this morning. The spectacular light was totally worth getting up at 5am for!
