Southport Beach – 18/11/2018
A couple of weeks ago we ventured up to Lancashire for a weekend with my family, during our time there we visited the Blackpool Illumations and then on the Sunday we headed to the opposite beach over in Southport. As a child growing up in Lancashire I lived pretty much half way between either of these coasts, but always much preferred visiting Southport for a visit to the beach as it was always quieter than Blackpool but also because it always had the best shells to collect. Blackpool was always about lights and entertainment up by the roadside where as the beach and quietness was the appealing aspect in Southport. The sea stretches out such a long way too in Southport, making it such a good walk to reach the waters edge, so much so it makes the town having a pier rather redundant as when the tide is out the water is nowhere near! Whilst walking on the beach with my family, I couldn’t help but stop under the pier. I took about 20 pictures from this angle, trying to get the alignment just right. What do you think? I know the image would have looked a whole lot better with some drastic cloud action going on but the weather that day way just way too sunny, barely a cloud to be seen! Which led way to this perfect opportunity to get some amazing silhouette images of my family. I’m taking part in a weekly linky over at Photalife, showcasing our best photo’s of the week.
