I met up with Trevor Kersley on a rather wet and grey morning and we visited one of my favourite locations Fleetwood Marsh on the tidal River Wyre close to the town of Fleetwood Lancashire to go shoot ‘The Wrecks of Fleetwood Marsh’.

Three shot HDR, hand held, of two of the wrecks that are visible. The Steel hull is the M.V. Eureka – BA558 with the wood hull possibly being the remains of Girl Lilian (no certain confirmation).

Nikon D5000 Sigma 10mm-20mm @10mm. ISO200, f4.0 1/80 e/v +-2.

Processed in Photomatix then curve and other adjustments in photoshop.
