A fine stretch of river at Cappoquin with sidecar, driver and observer. I think that the beauty of the Blackwater is oftentimes overlooked. Perhaps as it is not as storied as rivers such as the Lee, the Liffey and the Shannon. But its tree lined banks and deep pools make it a place of peace and great beauty!
There's general agreement that the image was taken around here

This'd be one possibility. There's mountains in the distant background, but the depth of field is so different it's hard to say if they're the right ones. email@example.com,-7.8664118,3a,52.9y,361.69... OSI: maps.osi.ie/publicviewer/#V2,609130,594623,10,7
The house on the hill looks like this one: www.waterfordmuseum.ie/exhibit/web/DisplayImage/K0L7HkqaX... Which matches the OSI, but not at all the NIAH: www.buildingsofireland.ie/niah/search.jsp?type=record&... edit: "The house was built in the late 18th century and demolished in the 1960's. The building to the right of the photograph behind the house is still in existence." Which would explain it. Here it is in Streetview: firstname.lastname@example.org,-7.8690013,3a,64.6y,48.23h...
A spectral figure materialises out of the wall.

The Lemur's 'house on the hill', Dromana, is described in this 1929 article via Trove - trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/107343113 Including - "... there lived and died the celebrated 'old Countess of Desmond'. According to one account, this remarkable woman, at the age of 140, undertook the then difficult journey to London to demand fiom James I. the restoration of her jointure. Another account makes her not quite so old, for it says she — Lived to the age of one hundred and ten, And died from a fall from a cherry-tree then.

It's a place of incredible beauty. And the composition is fantastic, but I would lay odds that the apparition standing by the gap in the wall will get most of the attention from this shot. Spooky!
