Photographer's Note

I took this picture earlier this evening at Cockerham Sands on the North-West coast of England. I moved to this part of England a few months ago and I go out each weekend looking for new places to explore. Today I headed down to the coast to see if I could shoot some landscape shots.

Earlier in the afternoon I picked this spot hoping that the setting sun would be a treat. This view looks across the Lune river as it broadens and reaches the sea and flows into Morecambe Bay. Across the sea in this picture you should be able to see a few twinkling lights of houses on the Cumbrian coast.

Morecambe bay is the largest tidal estuary in Britain and is infamous for it's treacherous quicksand, huge expanse of sands when the tide is out and the tremendous speed that the tide comes in. Unfortunately people are killed every year when they are caught unaware by the advancing tide. It is so quick it is impossible to out run the incoming waters.

I thought this cloud almost looked like the red eye on Jupiter and the swirling atmosphere of an alien world.
