One of the joys of a bright summer day, few though they may be, is the way the intense light creates a new zone of interest beneath a tall object.
A classic example, here, is the Race Office of the Morecambe Sailing Club (MSC). It sits high, overlooking Morecambe Bay on the edge of the town centre.
The Race Office sits on an engineered platform made from sections of steel lattice. It’s a simple and stark structure, but visually fascinating.
From the bright promenade, I noticed the deep shadows beneath the structure. Moving beneath the tall supporting pillars, I was surrounded by muted shadow effects that captivated the eye. After that, it was simply a matter of finding the best angles to highlight the ususual perspectives on offer.
The final image, below, is of the MSC Race Office, photographed at ‘surface level’.
