Ephemera 10: the pontoons at Ballina

Do my eyes deceive me?

The still-unopened mooring pontoons below the bridge at Ballina (bottom of Lough Derg) seem to have sprouted an extension.

Here is what they looked like in 2009.

Here they are in the floods of November 2009.

And here they are in January 2011, seen from downriver.

Well I never.
