I haven’t posted a Southport shot here in a while, so here goes! This one’s a minimal image with just marram, beach, sea and sky. I think this sort of shot is one of my all time favourites. I never tire of taking these photos, they are simple and easy to look at, the sort of images I’d like to hang on my wall.
Over at my new ‘favourite place’ along the big bank that runs from the top of the coast road at Crossens down towards Marshside the puddle is back. This is just a few inches of water at the side of the fence, but just enough to reflect the sky beautifully.
The wind was blowing ripples into even this shallow draft, so I took a tripod and shot a long exposure to blur the movement. The soft evening light couples well with the hint of movement in the water.
