(Above: the frozen shore at Bolton-le-Sands)

I don’t think I ever remember the temperature, here, being minus ten, before.

But that’s what it was, according to the gauge in the car on the way to Bolton-le-Sands, where – in the course of walking Tess the collie – I took this shot.

Few people graced the frozen landscape, which gave it a ghostly isolation. The one dark figure walking slowly along the horizon gave me the human interest I sought amidst the white and ice.

I published it on the local Morecambe and Heysham Facebook groups. So far it’s notched up nearly five hundred ‘likes’, and more relevantly, hundreds of comments.

Which shows how we all stand in awe when Nature does something extraordinary, even when it’s potentially life-threatening.

  1. The picture give me the shivers, Steve. A wonderful capture of the cold and the bleakness of mood, like one of those Dutch masters. It’s certainly been a cold spell!
