Crosby, Blundellsands

Families play on the sands as the evening ferry passes between shore and wind farm and slips out of the Mersey Estuary into the Irish Sea.

Please forgive the "boxy" appearance, I had to take this one on the end of the digital zoom to get the compressed perspective effect.

Just small adjustments to contrast and saturation. Cropped slightly.

Stunning image! I love how the depth moves in layers. I actually live the 'boxy'ness of it all...almost held in suspension as though the wave is about to come crashing down at any time. Beautiful colours. Love the silouetted people. One question though...the figures to the top right...are they not the same image duplicated?

Very nice. Excellent composition. Beautiful, stunning colors.


Hello Bill,
You got many interesting point of interests or activities in each layers of this composition. Wonderful contrast & lighting. Love the silvery reflection. Silhouettes are wonderfully placed. Wish the ferry is slightly more to the right but then the silhouettes won't be in the same position. Regards. Latiff.

I like this one Bill, lots of interest in each layer of the shot and the light is quite special
(figures top right?? I am confused)

Hello Bill!
Great reflection and special light in your picture!
Nice colours!
Excellent done!
Best regards!

...I return... :)

Hello Bill,
Nice soft colors and evening mood.
Well composed shot. TFS

Hello Bill
Man oh man what nice to see you back on and even again a great shot
I like the darker and lighter parts as repeating layers Bill, it ad that little something that makes it great
I dare to say: an exellent play of lights.
Well done me Billy friend :-)
Have a great weekend and 'brood' on your next photo move :-)
Adios ..your 'cloggy' friend

What a lovely picture.!

A fascinating composition in which subject compete for attention!

hey Bill
Beutiful colors and light. Well composed and presented.


Hi Bill,

Nice shot... I like the "banded" effect of the immage and the high contrast effect of the twilight.


Layers of light and colour Bill and very effective. It is almost as though there are two images here. Good detail and well presented. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Through the Fog’. I enjoy the battle with the lower light conditions Bill. If I can get a handful of decent shots out of the 100 or so I may take on days such as this I am happy.

Hello Bill
This is an attention-grabber! It has so much to interest - colour, light, mood, composition. A solemn, moody feel as the sun goes down, and the ferry departs. Those figures are so well composed! Hope you were well wrapped up, I can feel the chill!
Great one, Bill!
Best wishes
