Southport Marine Lake Dusk

Marine Dusk

Southport Marine Lake is generally a fairly flat, uninviting expanse of water, but just as the sun dips behind the Marine Way Bridge and the lights come on in the Ramada Hotel and the Funfair the water comes to life with reflections. If you time it right, the sky will have just enough light to balance the electric lights and the reflections on the water. This shot was taken at dusk, just in that magic moment when the light was perfectly balanced.

Vast swathes of marram grass, miles and miles of sand and an uninterrupted shoreline mark out the Southport coast. Peter Holloway has been photographing the Sefton coast from Southport in the north, to Formby in the south for many years.
