Photographer's Note

Cobh (pronounced "cove") is a seaport on the south coast of Ireland, close to Cork. From 1849 to 1922 it was called Queenstown to conmemorate the visit of Queen Victoria (!). It was one of the major Irish transatlantic ports and the last port of call (stop) of the Titanic. Over a hundred passengers of the Lusitania are buried here too.
Nowadays, it's mainly a tourist resort, and a pretty one with nicely coloured houses and a cathedral on the hill.
If anyone's interested in buying this building, there you have the phone number. It must have some wonderful views of the bay and the city.
I took a couple of "straight" photos with the sail boat, which was sailing rather fast with the strong wind, but I prefer this one.
Thanks for watching and for your comments!
