Seacombe Receeding


The first visit of the round trip on the River Mersey is to Seacombe, the landing stage appears to be relatively new, It is here that Mersey Ferries have their headquarters and also the new Spaceport Museum that regularly hosts visits from Cybermen, Daleks and Star Wars Stormtroopers.

I have always thought though that the best view of Seacombe is when it is receeding into the distance. The tower on the right is the ventilation shaft for the Kingsway Road Tunnel.

Seacombe is a new one on me Les, I take it your remark means urgh! Nicely taken shot here and I like the way the froth and riples fill the extensive foreground.
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment Brian, Seacombe is halfway between Birkenhead and New Brighton. tried to ensure I got the wake in the image.
Functional rather than elegant!
Les Auld: Very functional, thanks for the comment Bill.

I like the stark outlines of the towers against the sky.
Les Auld: Stark, a good word to describe the place, thanks for the comment Ian.

I think you're probably right, and the further it recedes the better wink
Les Auld: Couldn't agree more Ellie, thanks for the comment.
