Such a beautiful still evening in LIverpool town. The Liverpool skyline is ever changing and is always such an engaging subject to photograph. Was loving the interesting cloud cover and the chance to see stars over a big city is always a bonus!
Then when I got back and looked at the ship - it looked vaguely familiar. I realised I had photographed her in her home country. A few years back I was out in Buenos Aires on assignment for Conde Nast Traveller magazine - and there she was in the beautiful Buenos Aires harbour at sunset. So nice to see her again!
A nice little project to photograph some of Liverpool's iconic buildings/areas in the commercial district. This particular shot was taken from the roof of the Town Hall and was featured on the cover of the BID project prospectus (see below)
Last night the sky over the Liverpool city scape came alive with a spectacular laser light show as part of the Battle of the Atlantic 70 year celebrations. I was glad I stayed out a little big longer to capture the stunning laser light display that came alive as the sky over Liverpool City Centre darkened. The Morse Code laser light show was projected from the Royal Liver Building and was a tribute to Alan Turing who was instrumental in cracking the 'Enigma Code.' The Morse Code message is simply translated to "thank you"
Back down the Liverpool Pier Head again today to catch some of the action of the brilliant waterfront event.
Stay tuned for some more photos
I'm not sure whether the moon is the right distance from the sun or the earth is spinning on a particularly unique axis... or whether i'm just back in good ol' New Zealand and the sky is as clear as a bell. I think it's the latter.
Such a stunning night for a moonlight stroll along the beach.
I just had to go back afterwards, grab the camera and take a couple of shots.
A great night out to celebrate some of the young film-making talent of Liverpool. Sponsored by Atlantic Chambers, and held at FACT - the overall winner was Paul Banner for his short film, The Thing About Being A Man. The night then carried on over the road to Alma de Cuba. It's always a challenge to photograph in Alma de Cuba, with there being little ambient light to play with. First shot is taken on a tripod with the ISO cranked up to about 1600. A live band came on later and it was a great chance to get the 70 - 200VR out and meter for the candle light behind the band. Quite like the silhouette of this young Chinese double-bassist - and even though there's not much light, there's always a few different shots to be had.
