HDR? Stones an unusual color. Pretty structure!
John Prior: No, but a little over processed, rescuing it from the shadows
A great structure... I guess the 19th century had its version of terrorism...

Lovely capture John! I love the treatment and the wonderful sky adds atmosphere.

Your narrative is very interesting and my husband Shaun who is from Ireland tells me that the Irish National invincibles was the beginning of the IRA.

A very fitting memorial, John, and expertly processed.
John Prior: Probably just a little over processed, rescuing it from the shadows
