Out of season in Fleetwood

The beaches of the North West produce some amazingly dramatic scenes; and often produce some strange artifacts. Here, a discarded deck chair faces the sands of the Irish Sea.

The photograph was shot using the Manual settings on a Canon EOS 400d (Kiss X); F/11; 1/400 Sec; ISO 400; Pattern Metering Mode; 18 mm Focal Length; -0.7 (-2/3 of a stop) Exposure Compensation; Sigma 18 - 200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS SLD Lens. This picture was put together using Adobe photoshop CS3.
