There’s plenty of it on the way.
With Met Éireann forecasting a deluge in Cork for the next 24 hours (and probably beyond) you’d be forgiven for thinking the rain casts a dark shadow over the prettiest parts of the city.
‘The Last Note Heard’, a new set of photographs taken by local photographer Brendan Ó’Sé turns that notion on its head, however.
Shot using only an iPhone, Brendan’s ongoing series of reflections on the River Lee shows that sometimes, a little water can transform an ordinary scene into something truly spectacular.
Brendan’s shots of Pope’s Quay celebrate the reflections of city buildings on the river.
The soft lights of St Mary’s Dominican Church glow in the foreground of one image, while another captures all the colour of the apartment buildings near the Shandon Pedestrian Bridge, the old trees and the houses of Cork’s Northside in the distance behind.
All in all, these photos have given us a new drive to make an effort with our own smart phones – whatever the weather.
