Limestone Coast

Limestone Coast
A view along the low limestone cliffs between Silverdale and Morecambe. The far headland is Jack Scout. On the horizon is Morecambe and Heysham.

The form of the trees leaves no doubt as to the direction of the prevailing winds. The people in shot have fishing rods at the ready, but no water in sight. They didn't have long to wait. We watched the incoming tide rip across the flat sands reaching the rocks from the horizon in well under half an hour.

Love the shot Roy, The trees are something else, we get 8 meter plus tides on the Bristol Channel so I guess Lancashire must be in the same region

Many thanks Roger. Morecambe tides get up to 9m on normal springs - similar to yours, but more by luck as there's significant variability around the Irish Sea.
