Man with umbrella at Salford Quays

While uploading some more of my old photo sales to this photoblog – namely this sale from November 2003 (, I found myself looking at a set of photos taken on a very wet and dull day in May 2003 – actually my 40th Birthday – it was a cruise on the Manchester Ship Canal. 

Todays POTD image is one of my favourites from that trip.  The whole image is blue/grey tinted except the area of the umbrella which I used a layer mask in Photoshop to permit it to show through in colour.
