Photographer's Note

A rather dull and cloudy day at Liverpool's wonderfully restored and rejuvenated docks, but the lack of any wind meant the waters of Canning Dock were calm and provided some fine reflections of the boats and surrounding architecture.

Liverpool's Canning Dock was opened in 1737 as a dry dock but in the early 19th century was enclosed as a wet dock. Along with the Albert Dock and others in the immediate vicinity, it was abandoned as a commercial shipping facility in 1972 due to the rising cost of dredging and falling traffic.

Canning Dock was restored from 1983, providing access to the Canning Graving Docks, which are part of the Merseyside Maritime Museum which you can see at the right of the photo.

ISO 100, 1/125 sec at f/11, focal length 24mm.
