Solitude-by-the-Sea on the Fylde Coast

Solitude-by-the-Sea  In winter it is easy to find solitude on the Fylde coast.           WordPress Photo Challenge: Solitude   

Seats with a Sea View

Seats with a Sea View For the latest  Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Any Seating  I’ve put together a series of pictures I took at three of our local coastal resorts, St Annes, Cleveleys and Blackpool, in the off-season months of winter. Its a great time to wander around with a camera looking at the street furniture. In summer you can’t see the seats for all the holidaymakers sitting on them. In winter the traditional designs of the seaside shelters and seating can be appreciated. I really like them. I hope you do too.               To see more of our fellow bloggers posts for Cee’s Black & White Challenge click on this icon:  

Two Boats on the Beach on A Frosty Morning

Throwback Thursday: Two Boats on the Beach on A Frosty Morning I found this whilst clearing out old files. I took a few like this on a morning walk along the promenade in Lytham last winter. I was going to bin them but thought I’d immortalise use this one in a post.  It reminded me (not that I need prompting) to make the most of summer as its not going to last for ever.

Shooting into the Sun

In the old days of film cameras I’d never have “wasted” a frame by not standing with the sun directly behind me. Now that I don’t need to bother about the cost of sending away a 24 or 36 spool in order to receive 24 or 36 disappointing prints (or 20 or 30 because there were always some which never came out) the sky literally is the limit.       Looking out towards Morecambe Bay from Jenny Brown’s Point in Silverdale, Lancashire, UK
