A Southport Pier Evening

Cools blues and pinks sunset from the beach next to Southport pier Merseyside, north west UK coast beach, with reflections and shadows of the pier in the water under the pier

Over the years I have photographed this pier a great deal. I love its imposing structure and the fact that it mainly stands on sand rather than being submerged in water.

Yes, the tide in Southport does come in twice a day, but it always makes a very rapid retreat back the safety of deeper waters. Sadly there are no lapping waves on the shore here. But combined with a leisurely walk to watch some of the amazing sunsets we get, the pier does provide a wonderful photo opportunity.
