Liverpool’s premiere mood and landscape photographers are proud to present - Liverpool Nights.
An emotive sequence of exposures contrasting the tranquility of the nightime landscape with the vibrant hum of a city that never sleeps.
A moving journey through some of the city’s most recent developments; capturing the essence of Liverpool’s rebirth as a vibrant UK metropolis.
Some of the most vibrant and visually compelling art is often hidden in plain sight.
Stepping a little of the beaten track and into the suburbs of Liverpool City Centre reveals a thriving community of traditional graffiti and stencil artists.
It’s hard to believe that a new stretch of canal just under 1½ miles long could herald such a transformation to a city such as Liverpool.
Yet the vision and conception that is now a reality will usher in a new age for what was once one of the greatest maritime cities in the world.
Liverpool’s maritime history is perhaps better recalled as a staging point for emigrants leaving these shores yet with the birth of this engineering feet Liverpool will once again look forward to welcoming people from across the United Kingdom and beyond.
Jesse Hartley, the renown Liverpool dock engineer and responsible for most of our historic waterfront, would, I am sure, be highly satisfied with this ‘addition’ to his legacy. It is interesting to note that two of Jesse Hartley’s most notable achievements to his life and work are visible at each end of the new Canal Link 169 years after his death, namely Victoria Tower and Albert Dock.

Exhibiting the largest collection of canal boats in the world, the National Boat Museum at Ellesmere Port is housed in a 200 year old complex of original canal side buildings.
This historic site truly is a national treasure that will appeal to all ages and with so much to see that one could easily return again and again.
Restoration of the buildings, locks and exhibits is a credit to all those who have participated, it is without doubt a ‘must do’ place to visit but be sure to take your camera.
From the visitors centre staff to those who work around the site I have to say a nicer bunch of people would be hard to find, they really could give many shop and supermarket staff a run for their money in politeness and friendliness – superb.
