The story behind the image

During our Ireland trip in 1999 we also visited Kinsale in County Cork at the south coast. As we usually do not plan our overnight stays ahead we did not have a pre-booked accommodation for that night. When we were in Kinsale, we regreted this, because it is one of those beautiful spots that just deserve more time. However, all the B&Bs were fully booked that afternoon, and so we just walked around the town center and the harbour area.

I like this shot because of the warm light of the afternoon sun that already created nice shadows and contrasts. The reflections on the water are nice, too.

We finally stayed in Bantry, about 80 km to the west, after (in the end) frantically seeking a place for the night. Next time we’re around, we will certainly pre-book an accommodation in Kinsale! 🙂
