photoblog image Birkenhead Docks

Birkenhead Docks


East and West Floats in Birkenhead seen from the top of Liverpool Cathedral.

In the forefront there is Twelve Quays Ro-Ro terminal were the Irish Ferries depart from.

On the lower right is the Four Bridges Bascule Bridge and to the centre is the Old Pump House.

Leasowe Lighthouse, Burbo Bank wind farm and Liverpool Bay can be seen in the far distance.

Very nice capture. I like the low lighting and the crop!
Les Auld: Late afternoon light Richard thanks for the comment.
Thats a view I have never seen before Les. Amazing how compressed it looks. You cab see the old mill at Morton, that brings back memories, the sound of Frankie Lane singing Jezebel, wafting out of the rollerskating rink whilst waiting for the bus back to Seacombe for the ferry, ah, happy days! Great shot I must get to the top of the Cathedral before I pop my clogs.
Les Auld: Happy days indeed Alistair, well worth the fee to get to the top and not so difficult now they have installed lifts in the tower, thanks for the comment.

All very industrial Les but a great view. What is the castle like building mid-picture?
