Formby Beach, Merseyside

    Newer Older

    Part of the pleasure of holidays (in this instance the Easter holidays) is having a bit more time to oneself to go out to the beach with the camera again (the last time was in January to Saltwick Bay).

    Being over at the in-laws in Rochdale gave us the opportunity to take a visit to Formby, just north of Liverpool. This was my first visit, so I didn't know quite what to expect.

    When I got to the beach I was presented with a length of sand which reminded me of Bamburgh, such was its vastness.

    Not having the Nikon I took this with the point-and-shoot Ricoh GX100. Even though the Ricoh doesn't have the ultra-wide aspect of the Tokina 11-16mm I thought it managed to capture the vastness of the this beach quite well, with the dunes captured to the right of the composition being the only other main feature of this beautiful stretch of beach.

      Love the way that the textures in the sand echo the formation of the clouds and that yellow ocre light in the sky is a bit special.

      It is a very effective shot and even a handbag camera can deliver when operated by a good man.

      Great view, the low angle gives it a lovely feeling of space

      Fabulous picture, I am certainly getting a sense of wide open space from it.

      Oh, I missed this one.Wonderful shot.
      Looks just like a desert that has just taken a beating from the heavens. Great reflections leading the eye into the distance.

      Incredible foreground here. Nice evening colors and well composed. It is always hard to choose between a great sky and a nice foreground. I think you found a good compromise.

      Wonderful contrast between sky & land!
