Look North

A groyne on Fleetwood beach pointing directly toward that black hill, which I think is above Millom in Cumbria but I'm not certain: answers on a post-card, please...:-)

wonderful composition, I love the backdrop, I have to say when I visited this area I was impressed with the distant scenery, haven't a clue as to where or what though....
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Shooter. Alistair's nailed it down, I think...
Beautiful!!
Dave Carrington: Glad you like it, Pedro!

I can definately agree that it is in the Lake District, apart from that your guess is probably better than mine.

Nice image though.
Dave Carrington: Glad you think so, Les!
This is good stuff: simple composition and brooding atmosphere. Very well executed!
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Martin!
My goodness, that looks so desolate! Wonderful atmospheric shot! (:o)
Dave Carrington: Hi, Rosalyn. Glad you like the atmosphere here: Fleetwood isn't as bad as it looks...honest!!
Very moody, me old mucker.

Black Coombe is the most westerly high point then Swinside! There full of useless information
Dave Carrington: Yep, I think it's Black Combe. I thought you would probably know!

great use of line to pull viewer into the image. How did you convert to b/w. Photoshop or another plug-in?
Dave Carrington: Hi, Gido. I used the 'Alien Skin' plug-in for Photoshop, then retoned with a warming filter, & partially desaturated the image.

Nice shmood, matey and liking the compositional elements but you've made me ask the question, is my monitor leaning to one side, or is it the curious interplay twixt heavenly clouds and torpid sea that are making me think it is, or is I bog eyed...
Dave Carrington: Wotcha, Max. Wot mercurial verbiage slips forth from thy silken tongue, Master! I looked at this for ages & in the end, decided it was square: maybe it's me that's bog-eyed after all!
