Blackpool Beach at Dusk

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 27 October 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

A snapshot from a day out photographing at Fleetwood and Blackpool with John Leech and Mike Spriggs last weekend.

We ended up on Blackpool beach at dusk where we had some wonderful light. This one felt more like 'Street' photography than landscape :-)

What I prefer here, despite the wonderful light, is the sight of this two families, so together to share this precious time of love and friendship.

superbe ! I love the silhouettes of the two families and their reflection on the wet sand, the wonderful sky and light on the rays of sun with these two of three birds flying away.....a great sharpness, a great B&W !

Nice capture. It is interesting to see your clicks that have some "street photography" mixed in with your always wonderful landscape captures.

The "fractured" look of the reflections on the sand is quite mesmerising; gorgeous.

Beautiful photo. is like watching three different states, three different worlds, the family, the sky and sea. each with its state, its strength and ignoring the others. but all under one same picture. thank you very much. Alex
