The Lock Gates

November 20, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Tralee Ship Canal opened in 1846 to transport passengers and goods from Tralee Bay to the town.  The canal is two miles long and could transport ships up to 300 tons but due to continuous silting and the development of Fenit as a deep water harbour, it fell into disuse.  

Thanks to significant investment, the canal is now a local amenity and a wonderful area for a walk with stunning views of Tralee Bay, Blennerville Windmill and the Slieve Mish Mountains.  

This photograph is of the Lock Gates on the Ship Canal at Lohercannon, looking towards Blennerville.  The restored windmill and visitor centre can be seen to the left of the photograph.

Tech stuff:  Camera: Fujifilm X-E1; Lens Model: XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS; 1000x ND Filter; Sekonic L-758DR Light meter.
