Had a trip over to Crosby yesterday and dragged Mr Murren away from his nice warm fire (not that he needed that much persuading!) Wink

Glad I did, as he showed me where to go (in the nicest way!) as the 'men; have mostly been removed from where we normally go, PLUS the tide was in and hammering against the Sea Wall Sad

By the time I got this shot my right foot was a block of ice as my Wellies (only worn three or four times) were suddenly as waterproof as a sieve!

Loved the way the lights are reflected in the edge of the pool of water, hence the title.


Paul suggested that since I'd opted for this crop, I could put it in the Pano Gallery, even tho' it's from one shot, so if it don't work, blame him Wink

15sec @ f16 ISO100 focal length 17mm Lee.6 ND Soft Grad.

BTW- - this was the last shot I took - - and my fav, I think -- just goes to show Smile

Thanks for looking - - have a gr8 Sunday, think we're having a "Chill Out" day, after a brief visit to B&Q to sort out the welly problem! Smile

Take Care
Fran xx


BTW - - as MrdeMilo has commented - - this does benefit from viewing LARGE

Splendid looking image and well spotted too.
Dragged away from a warm fire I should be so lucky (another song title for you there) dragged away from the kitchen sink is more like it.
I agree after you showed me the lights in that pool I also think out of mine I like that one I have as being the best but itís your shot and Idea so mine will stay in my private collection Wink lol

Thanks for dragging me out Smile

Ian.

Lovely blue tones contrasting well with the colours of the lights, lovely placement of the figure within the frame too, and an excellent crop.
