The tide was still on its way out when I left (8ish), it may have gone quite a bit further out, I had been there since 06:30 and got a bi bored and a bit cold, but I think ya gonna need some serious telephoto lenses to get any decent photo's of it from the shoreline.

The closer you get to it, the further away you realise it is!

Shame!

And I think, having tried on a 1m tide, that anyone who is thinking we might get there one day, im gonna have to dash your hopes, bar a freak tide retraction, you've got no chance, unless...

a. you can get access to a boat;
b. your names Eric;
c. you names Moses.

There was an offshore wind tonight and the tide went out further than previously - what I need now is a force ten offshore wind - that doesn't blow me out to sea.

The objective wasn't to get photographs of the wreck (the one earlier in the thread is near perfect) - it was just a bit of fun to try and take photographs of the weck. I was hoping a bit of competition would start up - come on Matty, show us your pictures - photochoppin/enhancement fully allowed.

The circular walk - hoylake - wreck shore - Hilbre - middle eye - hoylake is really good walk - see different things each time. BUT PLEASE CHECK TIDES AND BEWARE OF SINKING SANDS.

In theory the 400mm on the cropped body makes it 640mm. When I have the pennies to buy the teleconverter I want it'll be 896mm.

Oh and the lens will be quite good too doh

I was shooting at between 300 and 600mm and its useless, even cropping the image (12.3mp RAW) brings up very little detail.

900mm might be getting somwhere mate if your interested. Id get myself onto ebay for a 900mm lens but im not all that interested in photographing it, wanted to get to it really, or at least try lol. Its just too far away to be honest, the nearer you ge to it, the further away it seems, I think it's as you realise how far away it actually is, from the shoreline it hard to grasp it until you are right out as far as the tide goes, and then its still miles away.

Don't suppose anyone went out today did they? There was an immensely low tide (0.7m) this morning.

Still looking to go out on the 22nd August though, 0.4m tide is still confirmed. Will be the lowest tide of 2009.

Saw a bit more of this today, it was a low tide, and I don't have a fancy camera, but it seemed that there was more on show than previously, and also the sand seemed to go all the way out, sure it's not the case, but wouldn't mind a look.

Cheers, it's only a point and shoot, but we were on Hilbre, it was an extremely low tide, and I took this a little while before low tide, there was even more on view. Need a decent camera so I can get better shors.

If you look very closely at the third picture down, you will see my Dad clinging to the top flat bit. He quite often gets wrecked off Hoylake!!
