The old cast iron overflow pipe on Crosby beach. Posted a similar one a couple of weeks ago, but that one was taken using the BIG Stopper ... this one wasn't Wink

Love the barnacle and mussel encrusted shapes of the wooden structure surrounding the pipe itself.

Right, back to work now ... let the tedium commence Grin

Cheers for popping in,
Paul

Really like this mate. I actually prefer it to the long exposure version. That sky is just too good to be blurred Smile

Love the detail on the wooden structure. I can't decide if I have a preference between the blurred version or this one. I think maybe they are just too different to compare. The long exposure gives the image a completely different abstract feel by simplifying the clouds and water but I have to admit to really enjoying this natural looking sky.

Cheers!

Nope, couldn't lose it ... as I never had it Wink

Yes ... just, mind you it would've been a fairly soft landing if not ... Fran was close by Grin

Thanks all and a huge thanks to Adam for your UA. Tell Xander he's more than welcome and congrats too ... hope it comes in handy Smile

Cheers Lianne, I understand what you mean but I tend to leave these types of things in as they are part of the scene but can see why people would like them removed.

Ta too Ron. Cheers all.
