This is another shot of Morecambe Bay, the view of the sands changes daily, sometimes even hourly and due to these dramatic changes the same shot can never be exactly repeated. It can be a very dangerous place and that is why there have been royally appointed local guides (holding the post of Queen's Guide to the Sands) for walkers crossing the bay for centuries. The bay is notorious for its quicksand and fast moving tides (it is said that the tide can come in "as fast as a horse can run"). It is particularly infamous due to the '2004 Morecambe Bay Disaster' in which 23 Chinese illegal immigrant cockle pickers are believed to have drowned due to the tide. Cars, tractors and all manor of vehicles have been lost out in the bay due to these quicksands and fast moving tides. A ever changing view that ranges from dark moody days to bright vibrant sunshine days with exceptional details.
