Photographer's Note

This is 'The Wave' a sculpture in St John's Square, Blackpool. It is 10.5 metres high and was designed by artist Lucy Glendinning. It is meant to celebrate both Blackpool’s coastal location and it's resort status.

This shot is taken with me looking up, though in my usual style I have flipped it and my POV is one of my "funky" angles. Two criticisms I have of it are that the clouds in the upper right are slightly blown highlights and the rear of the wave along the left edge could have done with being slightly darker so as to emphasise more the curved edge.

It was raining when I took this and this was taken in a short break from the downpour. I waited in a shop doorway for the clouds to break and I'm glad I did.

I'd like to go back at night to shoot it again as apparently it lights up too.
