PHOTOGRAPHED CHRISTMAS 2022 BUT NOT PUBLISHED UNTIL NOVEMBER 2023
As already mentioned elsewhere I photographed this monument on Christmas Day using a Sony FX30 only to discover that the there was no software available to process the RAW images. Fortunately I also photographed the pillar using an Apple iPhone.
The memorial is officially described as follows: “This imposing monument to the Duke of Wellington, is located at a prominent crossroads within the town. Designed by James Bell, the architectural quality of this monument is emphasised by the quality of the materials used. The artistic capability of the sculptor, Thomas Kirk, who carved the figure of Wellington is also apparent. The inscription reads:’This column erected in the year MDCCCXVII in honour of the illustrious Duke of Wellington by the grateful of the County Meath’.”
