Travel theme: illuminated

Leaving Sherkin Island.

Leaving Sherkin Island, Baltimore Harbour, Cork.

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is illuminated. This picture shows Sherkin Island in the distance as the ferry makes the ten minute trip to Baltimore on the mainland. Shooting straight into the sun probably isn’t the best idea, but it has created a lovely tarnished silvery light on the water and silhouetted ‘The Abbey’, the ruins of a 15th century Fransican friary located above the pier on Sherkin.
