    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    You probably need to decide between coast, river/lake and urban

    Coast, just about anywhere but a good favourite with a 10 stopper not to far from you is New Brighton - Perch Rock Lighthouse, sea defences, and other sea defences at opposite end of sea front from lighthouse by coast guard look out point. Use www.tides4fishing.com to check tide times, New Brighton is the same as Liverpool, but beaware doing long exposures at coasts the tide can move faster than you (sometimes)

    River/lake - I'd head for Snowdonia, plenty of waterfalls, lakes, etc

    Urban - Liverpool Dock areas or Salford Quays

    Been there today. Couldn't get the groynes in a "Y" shape with water lapping round them. Top arms were nearly covered before water hit the stem bit. Not what I expected!

    Yeah I know that. But you said that 5 mins earlier.......
    I could have got that shot but wanted something different.
    Then I found that Subway have stopped doing pulled pork.
    Good news is that I can get a Yeti with a 1.4 petrol engine. Goes like xxxx off a shovel.

    I'm looking at coast as the forecast for Friday is overcast and little wind.

    I was going i head up to Blackpool but think I may ditch that idea now.

    Groynes.jpg I shot this today at 12;16. High tide was 13:51.
    Generally at New Brighton 2 hours before high tide is best. After that everything has too much water over it.

    Sort of. I put a grad on in lightroom.
    Sky was dull as dishwater and flat light so no real horizon.

    Really?
    You must be doing something wrong. They are easy peasy. They just sit there and wait to be photographed.
    What were your problems?
