Southport 'cross the marshes


The RSPB Reserve to the north of Southport have been flooded more than usual this year, by summer the waters will have receded and this will be mostly dry land and the geese will have left for their summer hunting grounds.

Nature with the signs of human habitation at the back. A large copy of this one on the wall is sure to attrack a lot of attention.

Excellent picture. I like the light play on the water.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, I think I agree with you, would look ok on the wall.
I like the scene that you have caught. Skyline of the city to the bottom and the detail of the birds flying. A composition and treatment that I like!
Les Auld: Thanks Jose-Angel, appreciate the comment, just luck to get the light right that day.
