Photographer's Note

This magnificent bronze statue is located at Rosses Point,Co. Sligo and was erected to commemorate those who wait on shore for their loved ones to return from sea.
The plaque at the base reads:
"Waiting on Shore"
This sculpture reflects the age-old anguish of a seafaring people who watched and waited for the safe return of loved ones. The men and women of Rosses Point Parish have a proud history of courage and survival of loss and grief that should not be forgotten by future generations.
It is to honour the memory of these brave people who once lived, sailed or were lost at sea, that this woman, cast in bronze stands today on our headland
Lost at sea, lost at sea
Or in the evening tide
We loved you, we miss you,
May God with you abide

The stormy weather threatening just added to the poignancy.
