The story behind the image

The island of Ireland is a feast for photographers and those seeking places far away from the buzzing cities. On our way from Tralee to Limerick we used the long winded coast road (N69) which follows the shoreline of River Shannon. Near the community of Loghill I discovered this beautiful view, with the bonus of three grazing horses! On the other side of the river is Labasheeda, Co. Clare. As you can see, the river is quite wide here as the Atlantic Ocean is not far away.

Since 1999, it seems that a set of very nice houses have been built next to the point where I shot the image. The street is called Asgard Cove. The little hut with the red roof is still present today, but it appears to be renovated. The greens for the horses have been greatly reduced.
