This image shows Blackpool Tower and one of Blackpool's piers on a cloudy, overcast day.
Many years ago I remember reading that an image composition using an 'L' shape is one of several universal patterns. I didn't have this consciously in mind when I made the image but I do find this a very calming scene. The pier reaches out into the sea like a thin finger on a bedsheet.
I wanted to calm the sea and sky and I achieved this with a long exposure courtesy of a powerful neutral density filter on my camera lens.
