Exploring Sefton Coastline no matter what time of the day you appreciate its sheer vastness and beauty, even more so at dusk looking to the West, here we have some spectacular evenings all year round.
There is a certain romance I feel to sunsets, a few of us will make time for this luxury whilst being on holiday abroad, on Sefton's Coastline we have this available all year to us, and for artist and photographers alike such as myself I do not take this for granted, each evening here is a great creative opportunity.
Evenings like the one featured in the image at the top. inspire me greatly as opportunities for creation beckon, and this evening was certainly one of those evenings on Southport Beach.
I feel higher levels of satisfaction and gratitude for what's happening in front of me when I am caught up and photographing the natural beauty of the Earth (like a sunset), it can you rid you of any distractions.
A factor with landscape and ICM especially is you will use your environment to your huge advantage, this is apparent here, the top image is the before shot, the image that is on the bottom here is the after shot of the image at the top, a tremendous difference the movement will make in the image, I tend to wait for the sun to be fully down prior to even contemplating creating images with sky, on this occasion the sun was more or less hidden behind the cloud, but the colour's in the sky are mind blowing!!
