Wellington Column, William Brown Street, Liverpool.

I have long admired this column, which stands 132 foot in William Brown Street. The statue is 25 feet high and made of bronze, melted down from cannon captured at the Battle Of Waterloo. To get the picture, I went to the roof of Lime Street Railway Station car park and used my 70-300 zoom.

I wondered how you'd got so level with him. Very nicely taken Rod. Interesting about the cannon too.

Great shot Rod. Nicely isolated and spot on sharp

Very nicely taken, Rod, but I had to go to Google Earth Street View to get the 'bigger picture' of the Column. It would be nice to see an accompanying wide shot to appreciate the grandeur of the Column and the surrounding buildings, St. George's Hall etc.
