Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – DELTA

via Photo Challenge: Delta


Sunset at The Lune Light, Morecambe Bay

Morecambe Bay, Lancashire is one of the worlds most valuable Wildfowl and Wader habitats…..it is an immense area of water and is feed by the estuaries of the Rivers Wyre, Lune, Kent and Leven.  Twice a day the tide recedes over the horizon exposing large areas of mud flats and sandbanks only to be covered again 12 hours later.

A real Delta of many rivers and one of my Favourite Places.

Just an idea for this weeks DP Photo Challenge.

And it was WET…..


A lone Mute Swan in the Rain

Well they said it was going to rain…and it has.  The first drop of the wet stuff for a little while, they say the gardens need it and perhaps they do, but after the mini heatwave it does come as a bit of a disappointment and a shock to the system.

So far it has not been the heavy downpours that the Weather Warnings were indicating, but listening to the midday news I guess others have not be so lucky

……. Outlook gloomy
