Liverpool River of Light #2

I walked across Wapping from the Sonic Wave to The Pool – photographed above. This enclosed stretch of water is at the approach to the Liverpool One shopping area. The balls of light suspended at different heights above the water changed colour and the area/s illuminated also varied from moment to moment.

I climbed some stairs to reach the upper, eating area – overlooking the shopping passages below. Once I’d taken this image, I continued walking towards Castle Street and the Town Hall whose frontage, shown below, lit up as ‘Liverpool Love of my Life’.

Just behind the Town Hall is the Exchange Flags area where the Trumpet Flowers display was installed.

I’ve included an extra shot of the Trumpet Flowers below.

From Exchange Flags I walked under the arch into Chapel Street and turned left to take me down towards the Liver buildings (below).

As you can see, even this iconic building was illuminated in changing colours.

As I moved on, I took the shot below of the rear of the Liver Buildings before I photographed the remaining installations, whose images I will post tomorrow.

For my Photo of the Day I’m posting a shot of the installation that was located in the terminal stretch of the Leeds-to-Liverpool Canal directly behind the Three Graces. This display of floating illuminated cubes was entitled Spriteworks.

EXIF data were: Pentax K-1 36 MP full-frame dslr camera with a Pentax 24-70 mm f/2.8 lens, Shutter speed 1/160 secs @ f/2.8 and 27 mm. ISO was 1600.
