The Slipway at Priory Wharf, Birkenhead.
A stiff breeze had whipped up the waters of the outgoing tide so that small waves smacked against the slipway. I like taking pictures where there is an interface between different states - here the solidity of the stone slipway and the transient, flowing water.
This is a long exposure image (2 minutes) that has been converted to black and white. The long exposure renders the otherwise choppy river water smooth and milky, allowing the slipway to dominate and the absence of a horizon or other distracting elements within the frame gives the image an ethereal quality. Great for contemplation - where will it lead your mind?
The print is signed and numbered on the front and is also supplied with a signed certificate of authenticity that can be attached to the rear of the picture when it is framed.
This image will also be available in a larger size that will be listed separately.
