The harbor in Cobh, County Cork, Republic of Ireland
Small, brightly colored boats moored in the small picturesque harbor of Cobh County, Cork, Ireland, are featured in this photograph. Cork Harbour boats operate from the historic town of Cobh and are one of the world's finest natural and well-sheltered harbors.
Cork Harbour is famous for being the last port of call for the Titanic.
I love how the bright red fishing boat is covered in aging items, deflated fenders, and a wooden hull full of texture from being repainted dozens of times over the decades. Take a close look at the bridge of the boat. It's complete chaos! Wires hang loosely from old broken electronic communications radios; a modern satellite transponder sits precariously on the windows ledge. The more you look at this old beater, the more you wonder if it is safe for marine sea travel.
