Lough Allua

Here is your Watery Wednesday image.

Ireland is having the worst flooding in living history down in the south and west of the country.
The above image might be a wonderful piece of “Art”, but can you spot the lake, field and a road? No. Well they are there somewhere. This is Lough Allua, Ballingeary, Co Cork taken last friday. That’s the funny thing about the Irish weather. Two day solid heavy rain and winds and then a clear blue sky the next day.
Looking at this image would think peace and clam, and only 20km down the road, complete chaos with the main streets in the city under 1 meter of water still.
This was the very first image taken on that friday when we did manage to get through the flood water and make our way towards the coast and our final destination of Baltimore.

  1. Your photo is awesome as usual. Sorry about the flooding. I have seen other photos from the area. The weather is unpredictable all over the world lately. Is there a Baltimore in Ireland? I grew up in Baltimore, Md and go to work there everyday.

  2. You are so right, I would have thought that I was looking at a wonderful piece of art and I feel that I still am. I just would not know that folks are struggling with immense amounts of water. I am sorry to hear this. Baltimore, that is a far off journey. Your photography is gorgeous!

  3. We're in Northern Ireland and have had a lot of rain but nothing like you all down south! That is a beautiful photo though!

  4. That's too bad about the flooding! Interesting, it is also very common here. In fact we were slammed two weeks back (weekend)..next day was clear as a bell. This is a great image. Have a great weekend-
