At one time Southport pier used to be open into the evening; people would wander along and enjoy watching the sun setting and the lights coming on in the buildings.
Then they spent some money on it and bought a new tram fitted with an annoying beep which goes off permanently when there is any danger the thing is going to move.
Now they lock the gates in the evening, presumably for reasons of health and safety. No pleasure is allowed after 7 on this pleasure pier.
This shot was taken on an evening which had seen a cloudless blue sky gradually turn golden. I've tweaked the contrast and that is about it.
I shot it to convert to b&w, then decided I like the tones too much.
Thanks for looking, hope you like it, all feedback welcome.
