Photo Hunt - Lock
The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is Lock. Since I don't have decent photos of door locks, canal locks or those fine men or women who form the second row of a rugby scrum I thought I would stretch the theme a bit. Lock sounds like loch, the Scottish word for a lake or sea inlet. Move to Ireland and the word for a lake becomes "lough"
So having stretched the theme away from things that you put keys in to expanses of water my photos this week were taken at Millstreet County Park in County Cork, Ireland. The building in the first photo is a reconstruction of a crannóg - an artificial Island built in lakes and other watery places and used as a dwelling place in prehistoric times.
