Crosby Beach

I thought it was about time I went to the seaside again.

Crosby is a town in Merseyside, near Liverpool, on the same coast as Southport and Formby, both of which have featured here before. (In fact, it was to Southport I went, and from there I took a train to Crosby.)

This beach also has statues!

It is a work by Antony Gormley called Another Place. The statues are spread out along the beach, as you can see some of them quite far out into the sea.

It would be interesting to watch them get submerged in the water as the tide comes.

Sand dunes.

Seagulls.

Ship!

And sky, of course.

Sunset In Early Spring

I went to my favourite place, Heaton Park, for the first time this year. The pictures I took there turned out so well, I will probably make multiple posts out of them. Here’s the sunset ones–because you can never go wrong with a sunset.

It does look like spring has come, although I’m far too cautious to trust the weather.

Sunset in Salford Quays

I went to a Vincent van Gogh Alive exhibition in Salford Quays, and when I got out, the sun was setting. Salford Quays seems like a good place for sunsets; I must go there with my camera one day.

The building sticking out on the above picture is Imperial War Museum.

The building on the right is part of MediaCityUK, a location of some BBC studios and other media companies.

It was the golden hour–had I been there at any other time, I would not have caught it!

And yes, that is the topic of Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge.

Overthinking

This week’s Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge is my middle name–Overthink. This is my contribution.

I overthink if this picture is worth posting on blog

I overthink when there is nothing to overthink. I overthink when there is nothing to think.

I overthink in the morning, in the evening and all the time in between. I overthink when I’m eating and when I’m not eating.

I overthink.

I made this three years ago:

I have always been an overthinker.

World in January

In recent years, I learnt to handle the first month of the year quite well, as it’s something I struggled with in the past. January doesn’t depress me any more and I’ve actually come to like the quiet winter days.

I went for a walk with my camera to the wooded place in my neighbourhood, photos of which I’ve already posted here many times. Here I give you the pics:

Welcome To 2022

It’s important to make a new post in a new year.

So here it is.

Pink clouds and trees in my park.

Hopefully 2022 has some good things in store for us. I expect to reach 500 posts on Some Photoblog, I’m guessing sometime in the spring. That is, if I don’t run out of ideas, last year I covered all of my favourite things.

Also am looking forward to the Death on the Nile film, gods know it’s been delayed enough.

Happy 2022, to everyone who’s reading this.

Skies in November

I’m pleased about today’s post for two reasons: 1. photos taken with camera, not smartphone (that’s the second post in a row with camera pictures–it’s getting better) and 2. skies!

Sunrise above, sunset below.

It was November— the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind—songs in the pines.

Autumnal Castlefield

You know you can’t get enough of autumn!

I took so many nice pictures on my walk in Castlefield, Manchester, at the end of October, I couldn’t just keep them all to myself. Here I share them with you:

Hold an autumn leaf.

Throw it in the canal.

Goose eats it.

Asters in front of the Roman fortress. I wonder if they were there when Romans were there. Would a Roman centurion admire these asters, perhaps?

A setting sun. It never disappoints.
