Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 14 December 2007 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is the last one in this set of 6 photos showing professional cockle pickers working on the sands of Morecambe Bay in the North West of England!

The company for whom they work (Kingfisher Seafoods Ltd) have contacted me to say that they want to use some of these images for a new website!

NIKON D40 1/2500 second F/4.0 ISO 200 15 mm (35mm equiv.)

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

@Damon Schreiber: Thanks Damon! - I was very lucky with the nascient rainbow as it only lasted a few seconds as the weather was changing so fast....10 minutes after this photo was taken we had one of the biggest rainstorms I've ever seen.
