The deadly beach at Morcambe.

The beach here in Morcambe struck me with its monochromatic, desolate beauty. In that beauty is a terrible danger, also; the flatness of the land means the tides come in at an astonishing rate, and there was once a case of people drowning because they were unable to outrun it.

Morcambe promenade, early morning – this was a lovely place.

A short, late-summer holiday to Morcambe, in Lancashire. This really was a pretty spot, right on the seaside.
