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, and that the house in the background is Dromona House...
