This picture shows the view towards Central Pier in Blackpool with South Pier beyond.

It was a windy and rainy October day in Blackpool when I took this photograph. I wanted something entirely different from the traditional picture postcard and decided on a long exposure. I hoped this would give me a minimalist feel that would blend the sea and the sky.

Long exposure photography is a little like shooting film, in the sense that you never know what you are going to get until the image is 'developed'. I knew that the lines from the steps would work well in black and white but I hadn't anticipated the beautiful way the sea washed over the steps or the blurry appearance of the street lamps as they were pushed around by the wind.
