Beach tractors

Old tractors are used in the Ribble estuary at Lytham, Lancashire for catching shrimps and for launching small boats. I caught this vehicle and its distant companion against a threatening sky.

Great shot Tony. The colour of the tractor is really set off against the dark sky. This is a real cloud watches scene with God looking down through the cloud!!

Thanks Milton. I used a similar kind of processing on this shot as on "Wolfhole Crag" - sort of flat and subdued. I hadn't noticed the face in the clouds, but someone pointed it out to me, and now you've spotted it too. Clouds are like that - I speak as a member of The Cloud Appreciation Society :-)
