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’.

These boats were decommissioned from the Fleetwood Fishing Fleet with the demise of the fishing industry and grounded on the tidal estuary of the River Wyre in sight of their home port of Fleetwood, Lancashire.

Hand held 3 shot HDR processed in photomatix with curve and other adjustments in photoshop.

Nikon D5000 Sigma 10mm-20mm @ 10mm. ISO200 f 4.0 1/60 e/v +-2.

John enjoys capturing images mainly around his home in the North West of England with a leaning towards land and seascapes. John also enjoys using modern processing techniques designed to give images a more in-depth feel to them. John is happy to discuss individual customers image requests.

    Your superb shot and editing has emphazied the very sad demise of our once proud fishing nation – excellent, (although very upsetting) , image, John !!

  • Thank you for your comment and favourite Mattie. I totally agree with your comments about the fishing fleet. I am old enough to remember a visit to Grimsby Docks and being in awe of all the trawlers tied up against the quay unloading their catches. Fleetwood was / is known for the fish, a sad sight now, I think one trawler and a handful of shrimpers working out of the docks.
