There’s no more talented artist than Mother Nature. Nothing is man made in these shots, nor is there any excessive Photoshop manipulation – just natural light and the colours of late evening on the west coast, looking across Morecambe Bay. In the top picture the South Lakeland Fells are barely visible and the tide is on its way in. The sunset below is a little further down the coast at Hexham which, let’s be honest, is not usually known for its natural beauty. The first and only time I’d been to the port previously was in the mid seventies to catch a ferry to the Isle of Man. If you visit on a clear day you’ll see an enormous offshore wind farm that would have been pure science fiction in the seventies.
