Hurricane Isabel dealt a setback to the Monacacy Aqueduct Stabilization Project. Ironically, the galvinized steel structure placed to support the already weakened masonry during reconstruction may have saved it (150 yr old iron railings included) from total destruction.

Thanks for the comments. Irony was a difficult theme for me. Hope my comments above make my entry clearer.

I don't see the irony. The shot itself isn't bad, what is that floating in the water?

I'm afraid I don't get it - unless that the fence which is supposed to protect has been damaged itself?
