    When I came to process this shot taken under the Central Pier, Blackpool, the red cast of the late afternoon sun made me see it as an image from Mars as science fiction used to imagine it - the red sand, the "canals", the rusting skeleton of a decaying building from a dead civilization... Don't worry, I haven't started the Christmas punch early, but I will go and lie down now!!

    It reminds me of a landing bay from a Star Wars movie. Very cool.

    Thanks for the comments on this one folks. Apart from the "otherworldly" look, I think this shot shows the field of view that you can only get with a wide angle lens. This was taken at 24mm (35mm equivalent), ideal for architecture without the extreme distortion of wider lenses setting in.

    Regards, Tony

    The sky is a tad too blue for Mars (;)), though the otherwise super-spaceship view of the pier and the red from the setting sun do help to create these associations! :D

    I'm not sure my camera wouldn't already give me lens distortion at 24mm ... must try it under the aspect to see what I get ...
