For some reason, nearly all the stuff I find on Fleetwood beach is man-made - old bottles, buckets, bits of old signs - so it was refreshing to come across something a bit more natural for a change. And I was tempted to produce a much more dramatic image than this one but, somehow, this one seemed better suited to a more subtle treatment.

On a totally unrelated matter: if any of you have been pondering signing up for our Photoshop tutorials, now would be a good time, as we're giving away 75 copies of our 2009 Calendar to the next 75 people who sign up for an annual subscription or lifetime membership. If you're interested, you can find out more about the tutorials and the calendar here:

If you're already a subscriber, then you can also win a copy of the calendar by entering our new competition, full details of which have been posted in the members' forum.
