Golden Brown

By MrsS    
Back to the solo trip to Southport Pier and one of "that" sign from a safe distance!

Still can't believe you had to wade throught mud to read a warning sign! - - guess that's just me being nosey!! Shhhhhh!!! I can hear you! Wink

Thought another Pano might work - - the pier seems to lend itself to that format - - let me know what you think Smile

2.5sec @f22 ISO100 focal length 17mm

Hope Monday wasn't too stressful - - jhave a gr8 week and I'll catch up over the next couple of days (I hope!) Smile

BTW : thanks to The Stranglers for the title - seemed appropriate as the image contains "Gold" and "Brown" (say it quickly - LOL)

I really like the composition and the way the bright sky is completely under the pier! You've caught some lovely tones in the clouds too.
21 Jan 2008 5:38PM
Karen is spot on Fran the golden light contained by the pier is what makes this so special. What does the offending sign say Fran?

All the very best

"Warning - - Deep Mud!" Dougie! Tongue

By the time I got near enough to read it - - I was starting to sink! Grin

Some people will tell you that the song is about the drug Heroin but the drummer always maintained it was actually about Marmite. Whichever, some might say you are a 'Heroine' for wading through the mud to read the sign and there actually isn't much not to like here, so it's not really a 'Marmite shot' ... I like it Wink x

I love the way you have composed the pier to run throughout the whole image on the diagonal.

Love the colours. Just love it, but then I like all your work, I wopuld have a hard time choosing if I had to pick only one.

Hope you have cleaned your new boots properly Fran Smile

LOL, yes, excellent avatar! Anyway I agree that the pano format is the way to go in this case. It really adds to the sense of it extending out for miles.

"can't believe you had to wade throught mud to read a warning sign!".....Maybe they should have a "Red light spells Danger"....ouch!
