In September 2005 I escaped briefly from a fortnight in a Wirral hospital to ascend the tower of Birkenhead Priory, opposite Liverpool Pier Head, and quite by accident witnessed this superb air display over the famous Royal Liver Building, with its 'Liver Birds' on top.

The display was in honour of the departure of a fleet of 10 65ft Clipper yachts on an 11 month voyage round the world. I watched them sail up and then down the Mersey before setting off. The striking buildng on the right is the Catholic Cathedral, known locally with typical irreverent Liverpool humour as 'The Mersey Funnel', or much worse, 'Paddy's Wigwam'.

It was a very dull day, so I've enhanced the saturation quite a bit in both shots.

Hi Alan. I thought your first pic was worth beefing up. As usual I enjoyed your pics accompanied by the info.

Nice job, Alan. I like them both. Bynx's edit is good, too.
