23 Nov 12 A day on the Wirral

03rd December 2012
Sometimes it takes a long time to actually do what you've talked about for what seemed a long time. Anyway a day out with my great friend Barry actually materialised and we spent the day photographing on the Wirral.

I've got to say I was definitely out of my comfort zone as I normally know where I'm going and what I'm going to take. The only thing I had decided was that I wasn't taking the 500mm lens.

We started off at Rock Ferry and although it didn't look a very promising location when we arrived, we did spend over an hour there.

I've seen lots of images using HDR on the web so I thought it was an ideal opportunity for me to try something different.

A rotting and decaying boat was the first subject then the legs of a working pier and a couple of shots of the wider view.

When we finished there we headed across to the other side of the peninsula to Heswall.

We had lunch at Sheldrakes which was pretty excellent and then headed onto the marsh.



For once I actually took my wellingtons with me and that was certainly a wise move as I was ankle deep in mud most of the time.



There was plenty to capture our attention and we spent the afternoon snapping away. We even managed to get some shots during the "Golden Hour".







I really like the last photo and I've had it printed onto Acrylic but at the time of writing I've not seen it yet. On screen it looks excellent but I know it can be deceiving on screen.

Anyway I had a great day way with excellent company so thanks Barry for an excellent day.

Cheers

Andy
