Ballydehob Harbour

Ballydehob Harbour
Ballydehob Harbour

Ballydehob is a small village in West Cork.  It is situateted at the head of a winding estuary that leads to Roaringwater Bay.  It has a small harbour that has become progressively silted up, so that it is only possible to enter it at high tides.  A few pleasure boats visit every year.  Ballydehob is popular with visitors as it has some very good traditional Irish bars, some excellent restaurants, and several arts and music festivals during the holiday season.  It is well placed as a base for visitors to explore the surrounding region.
This photo may look as though snow has fallen, but snow is very rare here, as we are washed by the Gulf Stream.  The image was made on a camera modified to be sensitive to infra-red light, so that green vegetation appears white, but water and skies appear dark.

Camera: Canon G9 modified for Infra-red.
