From Blackpool’s North Pier, I walked southwards to the Central Pier.
The clearance of the area between North and Central Piers is still in progress and a mother points her child in the direction that they’ll be going. The Central Pier with its Ferris wheel is in the background.
Meanwhile, on the promenade, decorative horse-drawn carriages await visitors to be taken for a ride.
On the other side of the road, public trams carry passengers between Blackpool as far as the port of Fleetwood.
Passing the Pier, you can see the gathering cloud, now looking more ominous. On this South side of the Pier, people may remain as the Sun begins to set for the day.
Not everyone has left the beach yet though – some seem reluctant to go, watched over by this gull who has a damaged foot.
One small family has the beach almost to themselves.
The image above looks back northwards towards Central Pier and Blackpool Tower beyond – almost as far as the North Pier.
The featured photo today is of Central Pier with its large Ferris Wheel.
