Apologies for the later than normal Photo of the Week, but I got distracted over the weekend preparing the talk I gave yesterday. Anyhow, with all this nasty damp and cold weather we’ve been having of-late here in Ireland I thought it might be nice to choose a brighter, sunnier, and warmer Photo of the Week.

This shot of the Royal Canal was taken from Jackson’s Bridge looking east towards Maynooth and Dublin. Jackson’s Bridge is the only crossing point over the canal between Maynooth and Kilcock and the bridge gives a great view to the east in the afternoons with the sun behind your back for good lighting. This shot was taken at about 4pm on the 30th of May this year.
