River Lee


River Lee, 2015 Cork City, Oil on Board, 18" x 36"
The River Lee rises in the Shehy Mountains in Killarney and empties in to the Celtic Sea at Cobh.  It meandered past our hotel in Cork.  One morning a heavy fog sat on the river and begged to be photographed.  
Cork City center is built on the River Lee where it divides into two channels and forms an island.  Cork in Gaelic means marsh. The mouth empties into Cork Harbor which is one of the world's largest natural harbors.  The city, typical of Ireland, was filled with buskers and laughing people.
