A timeless water and landscape scene from the Eason Collection today. We know where it is but what does it look like today I wonder? I must admit that my visits to Donegal have been few and far between, I must rectify that!
It transpires that we did not in fact know where it was. This is Lough Beagh not Lough Neagh as per our Catalogue. Thanks to BeachcomberAustralia, sam2cents
and O Mac
for their comments.
Lough Beagh does look very good on the ORTHO 2005 Photograph
from our friends at Ordinance Survey Ireland (where would we be without them). Ortho rectified photographs are far more than just images taken from a satellite in space. Captured digitally orthophotography is corrected to allow for slopes and other distortions so that it corresponds exactly to large scale mapping, providing high levels of accuracy
