Crosby Seafront

With the promise/threat of a high tide and strong winds from Storm Brian, I headed off to Crosby Beach where Gormley's 'Another Place' sculptures stand (they of course were well under water!).

There were plenty of people watching the unfolding drama, some a little more reckless than others, so I decided to take photos of them as well as some 'standard' wave images.

Fuji XT20, 10-24mm and 55-200mm lenses (so I could keep my distance, I'm not ruining my expensive equipment in salt water thank you!).

Formby Beach

I had an afternoon at the National Trust Formby Beach on a changeable day weather-wise. Sometimes it was really bright, other times clouds pushed across the sky darkening the landscape.

Here are some black and white images.

Fuji XT20, 35mm, 10-24mm and 55-200mm lenses.
