Summary

Leaving the French nobility behind, today we visit rural Ireland in the Stereo Pairs collection. This fine view of a river with bridge and weir has a super POV and is very nicely composed. The masses of wild flowers in the foreground make it quite idyllic, but we questioned whether the weir standing up to a winter flood.......... and indeed the weir is now gone from (as the team have established) this stretch of the River Erne near Ballyshannon. ..Thanks to sharon.corbet ( /photos/[email protected]/ ) , beachcomberaustralia ( /photos/beachcomberaustralia/ ) , derangedlemur ( /photos/[email protected]/ ) , and Vab2009 ( /photos/vab2009/ ) for the contributions - and especially O Mac ( /photos/[email protected]/ ) for establishing the location and Niall McAuley ( /photos/gnmcauley/ ) for helping refine the date.
