Ashton Memorial, Lancaster

This is Lancaster’s famour Ashton Memorial, which dominates the city skyline and is visible to anyone travelling past Lancaster on the M6.  I walked up to the memorial this afternoon and spent quite a while trying to get this photo of it.  I returned to this spot several times as the light and sky changed, trying to photograph it and to capture the image as I wanted it.  This shot is pretty close to what I wanted.  The forground is lit with a fill-in flash.   The saturation of the image has been boosted in Lightroom and I’ll be removing the lamp post in Photoshop when I get home.
