photoblog image The Mount at Fleetwood

The Mount at Fleetwood


The Mount, originally Tup Hill, was a traditional meeting place before Fleetwood was built, it is situated on the seafront just behind the promenade. There was al Chinese pavilion on the Mount, also known as Prophet or Temple View, and this was  replaced by the present, structure shown here, in 1902. The  Clock on the pavillion was presented to the town in 1919 in memory of the men who died in the First World War. The pavilion has been occupied by a craft centre in recent years.

I like the composition, but most of all how the orange offsets against the clouded sky.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, it is a good contrast.
