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!

At the Inniscarra Dam

At the Inniscarra Dam

Last week was my first time visiting the Inniscarra Dam on the River Lee. It’s only 10km from where I live but the entrance to the car park is on a winding country road that’s easy to miss.The dam itself is difficult to see from the road too putting it out of mind so I think most Cork people don’t think they can visit this beautiful riverside walk.

Note the tanks of the brewery in the background and the overgrown trees of the Peace Park to the right. Both gone now!

The red cobbles

The red cobbles

The new Shaky Bridge (Shakey Bridge?), or Daly’s Bridge, is a huge improvement over the old. The lighting makes it stand out, and it still has the shakes like the old one!

I love the cobbles on the ground nearby but the ugly concrete support under the walkway up to it leaves something to be desired. 🙁
