An archive photo from last winter that I was re-processing for possible submission to a photo competition.

These guys are professional cockle fishermen working out on the dangerous sands of Morecambe Bay at low tide.

Having heard stories of how dangerous this place is at low tide - this picture gives me the chills a bit.
It's a great shot, magnetic in it's composition, drawing me in.

Marie from Isère, France

Nice shot, composition is extra

@Marie: Thanks Marie....photographic composition is always a lot easier on the coast like this as there is so little visual clutter which makes it very easy to keep things looking clean and simple.

Frida from Sweden

Great composition. It feels like I'm drawn in to the picture. The light is also very good. Very well captured!

deep impact with the framing and wide angle !

Rui from Leiria, Portugal

Fantastic... Superb light. A great impact photo. The sense of space is so huge that Earth and sky seem just one. The option for BW couldn't be better, accentuating even more the impact and dramatism.
Brilliant Ian
