Dutchy and Jim captured a beauty here with lovely creamy water and a fine three arched bridge somewhere in Ireland! The scene is rugged, rustic and rural with some effort to divert the water just evident at the bottom of the shot. I wonder what it looks like today and does the beautiful bridge still stand?

    I went google-tootling across the bridge and found the "CLIFDEN ANGLERS ASS"[sic] - goo.gl/maps/yjLKWAamyeKLvXYx9

    Dutchy and Jim were up something tall for this. Was there a mill there?

    Ardbear Old Bridge on the 25" bit.ly/2GViIZa I see an actual gasometer and gas works further downstream.

    They seem to be in the field marked 491, which is a featureless wasteland. Maybe they brought a stepladder.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Well, it does at least appear not to have been concreted over. There's no indication as to whether that's as a result of anyone getting hit with a spade or not.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]]'s confirmation view was taken at the same time/day (see vegetation on the stonework near the bridge), but from much lower down on the stepladder. You knew that already! ... catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000339931 . Which might indicate that the loitering fisherman is Dutchy or Jim or the Fortune hunter?

    This bridge featured on the TV news recently around the time of the Golf outing scandal. The river was in flood and quite spectacular!

    Whatever about his identity, I like the cut of his coat, reminds me of a reefer jacket I once owned.
