A wet afternoon out

The Southport Air and Military Show is held on Southport beach every September. The guns of the 103rd Regiment of Artillery lay down a barrage during the Battle on the Beach. It was quite a wet day and I spent about five hours standing in the rainwater on the beach watching the show, and taking pictures of course.

Interesting capture. We don't see many military shots on SC. I like the silhouettes, especially the one of the photographer on the left. Did you ps in the smoke?
Les Auld: Thanks Martin, this is how it came out of the camera with just a bit of levels and sharpening. The smoke is real, there was a very loud bang every time they fired.
Great reflections and colours. A very strong image.

Les Auld: Thanks Ingrid, appreciate the comment.
Lovely colours and great reflections Les. Saw the recent edition of Coast about Southport's air pioneers, very interesting. Mike
Les Auld: Thanks Mike, I saw that episode of Coast as well and I have vague memories of planes on the beach in my early days.
