photoblog image Southport Shrimpers

Southport Shrimpers

In the early part of the last century Southport was famous for it's potted brown shrimps. Many shrimpers went out over the beaches at low tide in their little carts to catch the shrimps. Last year the local council erected a monument to these men on one of the coastal road traffic islands, looking out to sea.

It has a wonderful old-timey feel, Les. The sky is awesome.
Les Auld: Shades of the early twentieth century, thanks for the comment.
Took me a while to figure out this wasn't a real horse, I guess the lighting plays a part in that, very well done.
Les Auld: Appreciate the comment, thanks Will.
This looks to natural to be a monument of anything, but it makes for great photography, especially with that wild sunset in the background.
Les Auld: Evereything just came together for this. Appreciate the comment.
