New Brighton Waves

Whilst at New Brighton (see yesterdays post) it also seemed like a good opportunity to try to capture some images of the Irish Sea battering against the coastal defences:

New Brighton Waves 1

New Brighton Waves 2

New Brighton Waves 3

New Brighton Waves 4

No photographers or cameras were harmed during the making of these images, we just got a little wet……..though not as wet as some of the brave (or should that be foolish) people depicted in these shots…..;0).

    Great images, I’m curious what was happening when you looked the other way?

      Thanks Lee. I was standing at the end of the walkway. To my left is a tall sea wall, offering some protection and to my right a man made marine lake. Behind me the walkway opens out on to a wide promenade which runs for a few miles along the Wirral Coast. Quite a crowd had gathered behind me just watching the waves and taking photographs.

      It wasn’t too bad….out of shot to my left the sea wall gets bigger and taller. So I got a bit wet but it was perfectly safe.

    Mark, i think it takes a certain type of (mad) photographer to venture down to New Brighton to capture the sensational waves there. They are so good aren’t they! Love the top image. It makes me wonder though what people are thinking about walking down there in those conditions considering it wouldnt take much to suck them off the path and into the sea.

    Great shots, Mark, especially the B & W.

    (and here’s me complaining about a little wind down the local pier the other day – at least I didn’t get wet – only a little wind-burnt on my neck and nose).

    Great pictures Mark! Of course, it’s madly foolish but terribly exciting to get stuck in with conditions like this – and irresistible to photographers!
