Ferry Cross the Mersey, Liverpool

“Ferry Cross the Mersey” was the name of a 1964 song by Gerry & the Pacemakers. When I went to Birkenhead to capture this photograph it wasn’t my intention to get a ferry in the photograph. But thankfully they were still going at around 5pm when this was taken. Sadly, on the full sized version the ferry is quite blurred. This was because I set the camera on a tripod with a longer than normal exposure time, then sat down on a bench next to it and waited. I was there over an hour, not waiting for a ferry but waiting for that reflection as the sky darkened and the lights from the buildings started to reflected in the calm water.
