A photo essay in eBook format

Lake book_57G8840.jpgEarlier this week, I was fortunate to photograph a special conservation event here in County Wexford – the annual ‘cutting’ of Our Lady’s Island Lake, near Carnsore point, the most south-easterly point in Ireland.

This brackish coastal lagoon is a significant wildlife site and a place of pilgrimage. As the lake has no natural outlet, to avoid flooding it must be partially Cdrained annually by cutting the 200m bank of shingle beach between it and the sea.

You can look at the book and read a brief account of the event here:

If you would like to know more about our Lady’s Island, here are some excellent articles:
