A Day on the Beach – in pictures

I will write a narrative blog post shortly but in the meantime here are eleven images from a day on the Wirral recently. I arrived at 7.30am, in the dark, and left at 6.30pm, also in the dark.

New Brighton Lighthouse or Perch Rock Lighthouse, is a decommissioned lighthouse situated at the confluence of the River Mersey and Liverpool Bay on an outcrop off New Brighton known locally as Perch Rock. Together with its neighbour, the Napoleonic era Fort Perch Rock, it is one of the Wirral’s best known landmarks.

5:33pm – sunset was 5:51pm but we did not get the sunset we hoped for. We hung around until 6:15 just in case though!

We didn't get the sunset we hoped for but after ten hours on location it didn't seem right not to wait another half hour just in case!

6:21pm – just about to set off home but couldn’t resist a quick snap looking towards the docks and ferry ports at Bootle.

All images Fuji X-T3 unless stated.
