Ferry acroos the Mersey is visible on the right as it approaches the Liver Building topped by the famous Liver Birds. Hope you enjoy the song.
The weather was beautiful for over three weeks, blue sky & sunshine, people wearing shorts & Tshirts. Then the rain came and this is the result. I still enjoyed it.
I can see some rain-drops, was it taken through the window ? very interesting pic Theolfa, unfortunately Gerry didn't have his voice...I'll try later.
Szia, Zsuzsi! Yes it was taken through a window, I & the camera would have been soaked otherwise. And yes it has snowed and is still trying to come down. :( Sorry Gerry didn't sing for you. Theolfa
Yes, Roberto, even in the rain it is beautiful! Did you click on the link to hear the song? Theolfa
I did, Theolfa but honestly I didn't like it. It was like a lullaby. Sorry! But your photo is awesome! Fantastic panorama with a beautiful perspective. Also a nice mist in the distant. :)cheers, archrodney!
Thanks, Archrodney I'm glad you like it. It is marred by the raindrops on the window, but the view from this restaurant is so good, I hope to go there again next year, DV. Cheers! Theolfa
A wonderfully clear and sharp photo fading into mist in the distance. The raindrops don't become apparent until it is enlarged and at that point add to the overall mood! I daresay a better photo than on a sunny day. Great shot!
Now off to hear the song!
Thanks, JF! The song was written and sung by Gerry Marsden for a movie he starred in, named Ferry across the Mersey, and this Utube clip is from the movie. He is famous for the Liverpool Football Club anthem 'You'll never walk alone' played & sung at the start of every home game and sung with gusto at every game.
Once I saw the clip I remembered the song. Now I finally know what it was all about. I was never sure what he was saying in the song when he said Ferry across the Mersey. Amazing the years it takes you to learn some things!
It's a very nostalgic song fo me, having lived there for so many years, but you need to understand the 'scouse accent' to know what he's saying. Theolfa
I hardly got used to the Dublin accent and I can imagine how different the scouser's accent could be. It's a nightmare that everybody has a different accent. :D
Great shot with lots of details! cheers, archrodney!
Ta, very much! As they say in Liverpool. Even I can't always understand especially when they speak fast. Glad you like the shot, Archrodney, and there's more to come. Theolfa
Nice weather Theolfa, Liverpool did you proud ;-)
And thanks so much for the Gerry Marsden clip - it takes me back 100s of years :))
It's really Manchester weather, Amelia, and it was just passing through, but I managed to grab a few shots while it lasted. As to the song, you & I must be the same vintage ;D Theolfa
