On this day in 1942, Nazi officials held the Wannsee conference, during which they arrived at their "final solution" that called for exterminating Europe's Jews. And on this day in 1944, The British RAF dropped 2,300 tons of bombs on Berlin.

Masonite Dusk

Pulled in at Drumgilra Lough this evening after the sun had set behind the Masonite factory between Drumsna and Aghamore on the N4. The light was fading fast and changing by the second. I raced to get this shot before the light bled from the sky. There was a slight fog developing which is responsible for the lack of detail on the horizon but I particularly like the definition of the fence and it's reflection - foreground right and the horse-shoe vapour trail.
