Quay to the city

By Birdseye
Millennium bridge over the Manchester Ship Canal and the Quays, leading into Manchester docks (to the right) and the city beyond.

Manchester docks were the forth busiest in Britain during the 50s and 60s exporting and importing around the world, only made possible by Victorian ingenuity and determination to “bring the sea” and its ships to the heart of the city, 35 miles inland.

A reasonably warm night last week provided some night shots with the occasional rowing team going past for entertainment and preparing for 2012

Straight from the camera – no modifications, other than a slight crop.

F11, 3secs, 10mm

Many thanks for your comments. Its always difficult knowing the balance in lightness of the sky and colour of the lights.
Thanks again all.

Thanks Simon,

I think you are right about the sky - just keeps a bit more interest.
