Some days define…
In this case the cold. The vastness of Morecambe Bay is sometimes defined by its light. In this case the deep blue of an early afternoon with icy winds to match.
Ice on the foreshore by the lifeboat’s hovercraft station, clustered into tiny pools on the dark mud.
Two small fishing boats – most of Morecambe’s shrimping fleet – provide the only colour break to the endless electric blue; striking in their fragility.
From the jetty – unseen, left – falls a shadow so subtle, it looks alive, providing more dimension to the wet, black sand where none dare tread.
Blue, cold, vast.
