photoblog image In the distance

In the distance

 

Not the best photo of kite surfers. This was taken on Rossall beach, near to Cleveleys, U.K. What's  more of interest is the view of the Isle of Man, just visible on the horizon, which is approx' 60 miles away, some telephoto that is....On a good day you can see three countries from here, Wales, Scotland, and the Isle of Man.

Might not be The Best, Frank, but pretty durn good!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Ray.
I love the sparkly water and splash (no pun intended) of color from the kites! And yes, it is pretty cool to see the Isle of Man over there!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,Elizabeth, it is always nice to see,I never expect it....Like the Spanish inquisition...smile

That is very cool. I wouldn't have know that the Isle of Man was a separate country.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Hollie, well they have their own parliament, so I suppose that makes it one...http://www.tynwald.org.im/Pages/default.aspx

A very good shot Frank, I didn't think you could see the IOM from the UK, until now, that is
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chris, conditions have to be right,there is a place near to the coast up in the Lakes whereI have seen it on a couple of occasions,each time appearing closer than this.
Not a bad photo at all Frank. Oh to see the IOM.again, I've only ever been there about 14 times over the years. Yes I am a motorcycle racing enthusiast smile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian, of course that would be like Mecca to you...;-)
A pretty good shot Frank! I like the glitters.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Richard.

Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter.
I never realised you could see the IOM from the mainland!
Frank L Croston.: Here is the proof, Bill, you just have to know which way to look...smile

Pretty impressive Frank especially with such a shallow depth of field.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Mike, I didn't really notice it 'til I processed it.
