#fantasticMorecambe's newest (and quirkiest) business:
The canal and coast walk is a variation on an earlier walk from a few years ago, whilst the walk around Tebay was mainly to add to my collection of photographs following the course of the river.
Both images are taken in Heysham - Four Seasons took a lot more than four visits to St Peter's Church to provide the images for the composite view. Ever since I saw this scene in Notting Hill , I've wanted to create a composite still image that captures all four seasons in one image!
Morecambe Bay Partnership were successful in bidding for Lottery funding to bring a number of art works to the bay - some temporary and some, as Anna Gillespie's Ship are permanent. This sculpture provides an imposing addition to the view at Half Moon Bay.
We had a gorgeous day for our continued exploration of the beautiful Arnside and Silverdale ANOB - it wasn't quite as sunny when we walked along the Lune from Kurkby Lonsdale to Whittington (but it dad stay dry!).
I'm not very good at blogging!
I never got round to posting about our joint exhibition at Inspire - a wonderful gift shop and gallery on New Street in Lancaster! However the other 2 pictures are more topical: they are currently on display in the window - to tie in with Lancaster's Festa Italia.
There's plenty of variety in this 8 mile walk which takes in coastal cliffs, and the summit of Warton Crag. Although much of the route follows clear paths, tracks or roads, there are some steep sections involving scrambles up rocky outcrops.

It's taken me nearly 2 months to upload this walking route - and we haven't managed to do a decent walk since - must try harder! Click the image to open the route description.
It wasn't until I was reviewing images that I'd taken of The Dream that I realised the cloud formation looked like a "thought bubble" - unfortunately I didn't have a photograph of the pit head gear that used to stand on this site, so I used one from Ashington, Northumberland.
Whilst our younger daughter lived in Lincoln, I had walked past Empowerment many times, but the sun never caught it at the right angle (or wasn't shining at all). It wasn't until judging at a local camera club where someone had entered a picture with the sun really emphasising the lines on the lower figure that I realised I'd just never walked past at the right time! I took it at an angle so as not to include nearby buildings - and presented it with the statues at the angle they really are (more or less).
