This picture shows the view towards Central Pier in Blackpool with its Ferris wheel.

What drew me to this image was the steps into the sea on the left hand side of the frame. I liked the texture they create and the way they lead your eye towards the pier. The long exposure creates a misty effect as the waves wash over the steps and the pier supports look like they are emerging from a bank of low-lying cloud.

I'm not sure if anyone was riding the ferris wheel at the time — it was a windy and rainy October day — but the scene looks entirely devoid of people. It's as if it was taken in some post-apocalyptic world where global warming has reclaimed the Earth.
