We are very fortunate to live about 200 yards from the beach in a once world famous fishing port named FLEETWOOD. We are on the north west coast of England in Morecambe bay[Town County Population

The IRISH SEA is the main water in Morcambe bay.Morecambe Bay is a large bay in northwest England, nearly due east of the Isle of Man and just to the south of the Lake District National Park. It is the largest expanse of intertidal mudflats and sand in the United Kingdom, covering a total area of 310 km2 (120 sq mi).
We have the most beautiful sunsets here and we love nothing more than walking on the beach looking for sea glass and driftwood and most of all capturing the fantastic sunsets there.
The main photo is of my first sunsets of 2014 as are number 2 and 3
number 4 and 5 era from the last sunset of 2013
number 6 is a self portrait of the sun setting on me
number 7 was taken from ground level featuring one of the many groynes on our beach
number 8 is a reflection shot of the setting sun on the wet sands at EBB tide
number 9 is taken at high tide
number 10 is a shot taken from ground level through the grasses on the sand dunes
finally number 11 the sun saying GOOD NIGHT SWEET DREAMS
WE WILL BE HERE TOMORROW
We are so lucky to be so near the sea and witness these stunning sunsets. I cannot wait to go out at night to capture them as they are all different as the tides can be in or out the clouds either there or clear skies . But all in all it is a BEAUTIFUL site to witness
