Hi All,

Had a great day out in Blackpool yesterday at the illuminations. We arrived early (narrowly avoiding the Blackpool/Blackburn football match) and enjoyed a chippy tea before having a stroll along the beach.

After a quick stop in the the arcades (it just had to be done) we boarded a tram to watch the Illuminations. Here’s a few of the images I took:

The above image was taken on the promenade, you can just make out the south pier and the pleasure beach in the distance.

This image is of the patterns in the sand, I’m not sure exactly why i  took a picture (I felt strangely drawn to it) but I’m glad i did, because it made a great black and white.

This image was taken as we waited to board the return tram back to the pleasure beach, I was stuggleing to take night images in aperture priority mode, so i changed to shutter priority, with a steady hand i managed to get it to between 1/15 and 1/20 second exposure.  Considering the shot was taken without a tripod,  i’m very happy with the result.

There are a few more images taken as part of the set, you can see them on flickr
