On this day seven years ago, Denis McCabe and I were photographing Bord na Mona’s Blackwater Network near Shannonbridge, Co. Offaly, Ireland.
At sunset we caught this laden peat train heading toward the Shannonbridge generating station located on the eastbank of the River Shannon.
This is a RAW file from my old Lumix LX7 processed in Adobe Lightroom to better balance the colorful sunset sky with the shadow areas on the ground.
Between 1998 and 2019 I made dozens of trips to photograph Bord na Mona’s three-foot gauge systems.
