I've been posting a lot of photos recently that were taken during my trip to France over Christmas but didn't want to ignore this photo of Southport Pier on the NW coast of England that I took recently near where I grew up.
It's from the weekend before last, about an hour and a half before sunset, with the low winter sun casting long shadows and a mellow golden light across the beach.
The tide is out as you can see, but I searched out the wettest part of the sand that I could find to get some reflections of that great sky.
HOT TIP FOR ALL AM3 CONTRIBUTORS :
I've been having problems for ages with my uploaded landscape orientated images looking fuzzy and not as sharp as they should be....well I finally found the answer recently in an answer by Jason Kravitz to a query in the forums .....if you too have been having this problem the answer is to make sure you resize your photos to a maximum horizontal dimension of 800 pixels (vertical size is not limited). Anything greater than 800pixels and AM3 will automatically resize it leading to the reduction in sharpness.
Please feel free to copy and paste this advice into your own AM3 blogs as I'm sure there are lots of our fellow AM3ers out there having this same frustrating problem...it would be great to sort the problem out for as many of us as possible.
