Gas platform off the Fylde Coast, taken 5 years ago
A gas platform off the Fylde Coast viewed with a zoom lens across the sands of Salter's Bank from St Annes. I was informed that this is the first of four platforms being built in the Ribble Estuary. The land on the horizon is the Clwydian Hills in North Wales.
