Just an early autumn snap of daytrippers at the beachfront in Blackpool. The long lines of the railings were gleaming in the afternoon light and the day was more than warm enough for folks to congregate on the beach.
Blackpool is easily seen from Southport on a clear day. It’s only 9 or 10 miles away as the crow flies (or the fool walks), but it’s a circuitous route around the Ribble Estuary to actually get there. So this is the long end of my longest zoom to see the skyline from all the way down on Ainsdale beach. The sky was clouded over bringing a soft light and gentle contrasts. I hunkered down between the marram clumps to place the view in context and balanced the marram, sea, skyline and sky for this shot.
