Photographer's Note

Saltburn is small Victorian seaside town on the North East coast. This shot was taken on the same day as my first post, on one of the rare occasions the tide is low enough to walk round the end of the pier. Horse riding has been a popular leisure activity in the UK for perhaps the last 15 years at least, and most days sees a group of horses and riders on the beach. When I saw they were about to go round the end of the pier I positioned myself under the pier to use the supports as a frame. It's pure chance I also caught some gulls in the picture.
I needed to straighten the horizon a little, and while cropping took some of the sky away to emphasise the symmetry of the image, not only with the pier supports, but with the reflections. Minor sharpening and contrast adjustment with curves.
Hope you like.
