Eight arms and four oars propel a rowing boat at speed upstream along the River Liffey as it flows through the centre of Dublin, Ireland. 

I have always said that Dublin is one of the best cities in the world for photography, it's walkable, the streets are wide and the people are in general very friendly. Indeed, Rough Guides recently listed Dublin, the capital city of Ireland, as the second most welcoming city in the world. 

There is a relaxed feel to the city and there are always interesting moments to be observed, whether it's on Saint Patrick's Day or just any random day like this with a rowing team exercising their muscles in the early evening. The boat in the background is the Jeannie Johnston, a replica 'famine ship' moored along the quays of the Liffey.
