Crosby Beach

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 6 March 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A b&w photo of the wooden navigation marker at the Blundellsands end of Crosby Beach on a snowy winters day.

Crosby beach lies on the final sea approaches to the River Mersey and the port of Liverpool. The beach and water are a lot cleaner now but when we were kids we used to swim out to this marker at high tide - it's amazing that none of us ever got sick with all the pollution in the water at that time.

I like these flat beaches where the sea withdrew far to leave a big place at the sand. Very beautiful composition
