On this day in 1865, Slavery was abolished in the United States with the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution being ratified. 

Break For The Border

Taken about 2am, facing West near Dromod, Co. Leitrim, in between snow showers. This National Primary route between Dublin and Sligo was so quiet, I simply parked my tripod legs right in the middle of the lane. It was silent as a graveyard but so very, very beautiful.
