Just a sunset on a cold evening.

 

One from a couple of weeks ago when it did not rain. Southport Pier as the sun goes down over the Irish Sea.

Very unusual for us, we are having two weeks of rain already. All the cracks and folds are turning into streams. Even had a little dam on the highway this morning - potentialy dangerous - fortunately the traffic police put out markers and were standing by.

Excellent picture with the diagonal and strong sunset colours.
Les Auld: Enjoy the rain Louis, and take some picture, thanks for the comment.
Just a superb shot Les. Great perspective and colours
Les Auld: Just appreciate your comment Richard, thanks.

Can you see me waving from the other side? smile Great use of light, I assume you used some lenses or filters?
Les Auld: I think I would need to get a longer lens Dave. I usually use a graduated ND filter to hold back the sky and bring in some foreground detail, then some minor adjustments to levels and curves in photoshop.

Beautiful colours - the warm red contrasts with the cold blue tinge of the foreground. Strong composition too.
