On the Onyar River

The Onyar River that flows through Girona in Spain with colourful buildings and a blue sky

The Onyar River flows through the city of Girona in Spain. Photographed in August when I was surprised to see any water at all considering the dreadful drought that hit Europe in the summer.

Colourful buildings line the banks of the river and the Cathedral can be seen in the background of a clear blue sky.

The Eiffel Bridge

The Eiffel Bridge

The Eiffel Bridge (Pont de les Peixateries Velles) over the Onyar River in Girona is an eye catching red bridge. It was built by Gustave Eiffel, just before he built the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

The Eiffel Bridge

There appears to be a few Eiffel Bridges around the world, and strangely enough, this one isn’t listed on that Wikipedia page.

A fish out of water

A fish out of water

A fish jumps out of the water of the River Lee by the Lee Fields in Cork a few weeks ago.

Most of the fishermen gathered on the banks had no luck. The fish were after the little flies buzzing over the water!

The Tide is Out

The Tide is Out

Low tide on the River Lee recently, but with the talk of drought in Europe this summer, it’s hard not to jump to the conclusion that the water level is extra low.

I drove by the river yesterday evening during high tide. The water was only 30cm or less below the level of the street, an extremely high tide, and quite a contrast to the low!

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.
