[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Queenstown, as the East Cork Town of Cobh was earlier called, before reverting to its old Irish name in 1922 - the Cobh (cove) of Cork. Is there anywhere in Ireland more full of poignant memories than this embarkation point for America? From here hundreds of thousands of mostly hungry and penniless Irish men and women left to build a new life, especially in the Famine years of 1844-48. Many thrived and prospered, but many died on the journey in the terrible travelling conditions of the time.
Cobh is a pleasant waterside town, with brightly coloured houses where its streets climb the steep slope of a hill, the top of which is crowned by the imposing Cobh Cathedral, St. Coleman's Cathedral with its carillon of 47 bells. East Corks most impressive Cathedral.
Cobh is situated on Great Island, one of the three large islands in Cork harbour which are all now joined by roads and bridges - Little Island and Fota are the other islands.

It is a nice documentary shot, beautiful and colorful picture with boats lying on the ground, well done
regards Ryszard

Hello Francis,
Beautiful colours and shapes. An unusual sight for me to see boats grounded at low tide. And an interesting informative note. Thank you and best wishes.

Hello Francis, I always think that harbours look a little sad when the tide is out, but here with the bright colours of the boats the eyes are drawn in to explore your scene.
A clever composition making the most of the ropes and boat shapes.
Excellent DoF.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Francis
Warm colors on this group of boats, despite the sky looks a little cloudy.

Such fine detail aided by the stillness of the water within the harbour.
