The Irish Boat now arriving

The Dublin Viking passes Crosby, near Liverpool, bound for the Twelve Quays Ro-Ro terminal in Birkenhead this afternoon.

The watcher is one of the Gormley statues from Another Place. In the middle distance can be seen the new windmills being erected on the Burbo Bank windfarm whilst rain clouds start to gather over the Welsh coast.

Oh my gosh, it looks as if it's going though ice, and I can see how the Gormley statue could make people a bit worried.

Are those the wind turbines off West Kirby?
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Ellie. A combination of low tide and shooting into the light always tends to make the sea a bit high key, especially during the late afternoon.

Yes the wind turbines are those close to Wst Kirby, they can be seen very clearly all around the Liverpool Bay coastline.
Very crisp. Great shot.
Les Auld: Had to use a touch of sharpening but not too much, thanks for the comment.

Through ice is right! Are you sure this isn't in Antarctica, Les?!

That looks like one proud freighter!
Les Auld: I wouldn't mind it being in Antartica, could get some interesting shots there, but no Liverpool bay. Thanks for the comment Ginnie.
It really does look like ice. Excellent capture. All the best, Dave
Les Auld: Appreciate the comment Dave.
Es cierto, parece un buque atravesando un mar de hielo. Una escena muy bien compuesta! smile

It is certain, seems a ship crossing an ice sea. Very a well composed scene! smile
Les Auld: I must admit that I have neverthought of this as an ice picture before. Thanks for the comment Jose.
