PHOTOGRAPHY OF BIRKDALE SAND-DUNES, SOUTHPORT

This weeks photo Friday from Andrew John Wedding photographer Liverpool is a view of the dunes next to Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport. The dunes in the distance are part of the course, you can also see the gas rig in the Irish Sea on the horizon. This was a tough shot to get because I wanted to keep the foreground visible without it going to a silhouette, the extreme light conditions presented some problems with the exposure, so I duplicated it in Photoshop and worked on the digital image.  I wanted the foreground to captured the darkness closing in, and then I worked separately for the background.  The sky reminds me of the work of the artist Turner or at least the colours do.
