A great picture sir, and a great way of encompassing nearly all of your series.
I see Wires (but no Birds) Walls-even a piece of the old Cork city wall-,People (just about, well maybe just two people)Docklands(sort of,there used to be docks here) Reflections and Skies over Cork.
Highly commended, shows great economy of effort.

Martin, You forgot the legendary bravery of photographer. He is taking this picture standing in front of wild, dangerous river.

and that too of course, not to mention our hero's peril of impalement on the tip of the spire.

Wouldn't this be about the earthquakes, the event Cork is so (in)famous for, I would completely agree with both Martin and Philiip. But the earthquakes - and despite them - our homo superior photographer is there - laughing out at all these dangers, just to serve us this still - although ever so dynamic - shot of the pending disaster.

When I was young and growing up in Cork city, it was said that when the golden angel on the rear of the church blew her horn, it was a sign that the world would end.

Aside from that scarring, these are beautiful photos. Thank you so much.
