By simon butterworth
I took a diversion off the M6 while driving north last week to try my luck with the camera in the late afternoon light. I found this small jetty on the River Lune which was just crying out to be photographed!

This is an absolutely tremendous image from front to back and from side to side.The pier leading us in to the picture goes on forever and yet there is so much sharp detail in the trees on the far bank.WONDERFUL.

this has to be one of best jetty shots ever here at EPZ!!! I take down my words! This IS The Best Jetty shot ever!!!

Speechlessly beautiful, Simon...........

Thanks for sharing this! Wake up Pete!

The misty sunset is quite magical Simon, how do you find such places just driving off the M'way?
I think you might have second sight my friend, but the fact you tried makes it possible.
Another very nice image for the folio, now bursting at the digital seams as well as the film seams.

All the very best

An awesome shot Simon, love the lead-in but it's the faded reflections in the background that make it stand out above others. Another winner

Hey, thanks for the great response folks.
I just went out to have a cup of tea with a visitor and when I came back it's got loads of clicks and comments. Fantastic!

Jouko, in your position as the world renowned jetty champion I am touched by your modesty and flattered by your praise but I think we all know your position will never be seriously challenged by me or anyone else!!

Well, you have certainly done this jetty justice with this very fine capture, Simon. I love the atmosphere about this and the beautiful muted colours stretching out to the horizon. Deserves an HC at the very least.

I'm back again...

There is something seriously wrong with this site at the moment - I can't believe this (and your recent Highland Gold photo) have no awards with them, they truly are two of the best landscapes I've seen. of late.
