Liverpool revisited.

Planned another trip to Liverpool yesterday with Dean, and with most of our trips, the weather didn’t help us! When I want clear skies, its usually cloudy, when I want clouds and wind, its been blue skies and still! Yesterday wasn’t any different really!

First stop, New Brighton lighthouse – 30 second exposure.

Then off to Liverpool center.

Bombed out church.


Museum of Liverpool, shot before I was told no tripods indoors!


I wanted to see Antony Gormley’s  “Another place” on Crosby beach, and after a bit of research, opted to go there at low tide. Turns out my research was poor, and you should go there nearer high tide to see the sculptures in the water. Another day maybe!

Here’s a swan from the boating lake there.


To finish the trip we headed over to Woodside to get some shots of Liverpool from the across the Mersey.

Liverpool has long been one of my favorite cities in the UK, maybe the world.

It boasts some of the best architecture, some brilliant people and it comes alive at night. Its also only an hour drive for me which is a bonus! With some nice cloud movement on the day I opted to go, it was a good day for long exposures.Image




One of Banksy’s walls. Pre plastic protection.


We headed up to the Anglican cathedral. For £5.50 you can go to the roof to take in the views. On a clear day you can see Snowdonia. We got there for the sunset but it wasn’t that good. Once the street lights came on though, it looked fantastic!

Before heading up to the top, I got one a shot inside. A fabulous building!


And the view!


Then back to the docks before heading home.
