photoblog image And so time passes ....

And so time passes ....


 .... and the sun goes down over Liverpool Bay and the Perch Rock Lighthouse moves into shadow. On the far left can be seen the windmills of the Burbo Bank wind farm.

I really wanted the setting sun to be more central on this but to get the picture I would have had to wade out into several feet of the River Mersey so I settled for this view.

Wow, this shot actually made me homesick - well, for a second! You forget the Mersey can actually look pretty! lol
Les Auld: There are some decent pictures to be had along the Mersey Alexandra, thanks for the comment.

That's pretty dramatic enough, Les, without having to wade out into the river!
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, one day I'll remember my wellingtons so I can go out further.
Sun is fine where it is Les...as for wind farms....I hate themgrin
Les Auld: You and many others Bill, in my opinion they have been massively oversold as well.

I am glad you were scared of the merciful river grin The composition you have now is almost exemplary for me.

Excellent, except for the spots you left up there to the right.
Les Auld: I thought I can spotted them all Louis, just goes to show you need to check and check again, must get around to cleaningthe sensor. Thanks for the comment.
Well worth not getting your feet wet Les, a lovely shot.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian smile
Good range of oranges and threatening violet - but I think wading out a few feet isn't too much to ask is it? ;o)
Les Auld: Not really Mike, although negotiating the quicksands can be a bit dicey but you do have to risk it to get the ONE picture, or you can just make it an also picture instead. Thanks for the comment.
You did a fine job capturing this Les.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, appreciate the comment.
