An Interlude on the Wyre


A short break from the trains of the West Somerset, I had arranged to meet Michael Shaw (Murphys) to photograph the Fleetwood wrecks. So Passport and Wellington boots packed I crossed the border into the Fylde just past Preston and headed towards Fleetwood. True to form it started to rain, just the weather to traverse the Wyre marshes. So, nothing daunted we headed down to the Nature Reserve  and crossed the marshland to get close to the wrecks and so get the pictures of the various wrecks strewn about the riverside.

After a while struggling in the mud we went back for a cup of coffee and talked about photographs, processing and twiddling and the meaning of life. All in all a most enjoyable afternoon and it was good to meet Mick and put a face to a name.

Normal service will be resumed tomorrow with more pictures of Steam Locomotives from the West Somerset.

Seeing these old skeletons can get you to talk about the meaning of life.
I like the conversion - sort of set or goes with the mood.
Les Auld: Indeed so Luis, and why we had to loose most of our fishing industry. Thanks for the comment.

You and Mick together would make a good mix, Les, judging by your photographic styles. Hopefully very soon I'll be able to put a face to both of your names! Both of you have been mentors for me on SC!
Les Auld: Thanks Ginnie, it was a grand afternoon, good company, interesting subjects and plenty of mud.
Well worth the trip Les, it was good to put a face to the name. Bring some good weather next time.
