Wordless Wednesday…… Another Favourite Place


Location: –  Lune Light, Morecambe Bay from Cockerham Sands, Lancashire

It may well be Wordless Wednesday…… But we cannot let the passing of September go without some comment.  Indeed, it is a positive comment as September,  for the most part,  has been more like summer than summer itself.  You could say that summer was topped and tailed by a great Spring and now a great September.  

September is also the time that I associate with sunsets.  They suddenly seem much more intense an intensity which I think is helped by the arrival of colder evenings.  

As for my favourite places…..  The Lune Light, used to mark the entry into the River Lune from the wide expanse of Morecambe Bay, seen here from Cockerham Sands, it just has to be near the top of my list. 

Where ever you are……

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

That magic golden hour does not occur every day but when it does it is both great great time to be out and about for Photographers and Artists…but also a great time that does lifts ones spirits.  Nor is it just one hour, it can be a fleeting moment, it can also linger longer and can  happen at both dawn and/or dusk.



Dawn over Derwentwater, Cumbria, English Lake District

Day break and a warm glow gives all a promise of a great day ahead, though that is obviously not always the case…but we all live in hope and expectation!



Dusk at Worms Head, The Gower, South Wales

At the end of a day the falling sun adds its glow.  At this stage is can be full of expectation of something much richer.  But that is never guaranteed as was the case on the evening above… as beautiful as it was with sea merging into sky, cloud bubbled up from the horizon and killed off any hope of a golden sunset, so the moral is enjoy it whilst you can.

Then on a cold (very) winters day with clear skies as if from know where you get the perfect end to a day…a true golden glow.

Golden Hours become Golden memories for Golden Days
