Welcome to Morecambe Sunsets! This site is dedicated to the beauty and tranquility of a sunset over Morecambe Bay.

But why? »

I have had the pleasure of witnessing Morecambe sunsets for a few years now, especially as my journey to work consists of walking along the promenade facing out to the west. This means that at certain times of year the sun sets during my walk home. I've not got a great camera but I'm going to be posting some of the more beautiful photos I have taken of sunsets during these walks home, and any other time I happen to catch one.

Whilst out for a walk on a beautiful and hot summer evening I just happened to catch a lovely sunset behind the hills.

Whilst at a wine tasting in Bare in the fabulous Wineyard & Deli, I noticed some amazing colours outside the window and had no choice but to pop out and take a couple of snaps of the sunset.

The sun wasn't quite setting but the sky was clear, and everything was very still, which made for some really awesome photos!

A quick snap taken on my mobile phone at approx 19:30.

I thought the resulting shot looked extremely dramatic!

So last night saw one of the best sunsets I have ever seen over the bay in Morecambe. It was stunning for a good half an hour and myself and some other avid sunset watchers were there taking all the photos we could!

Here are the best of what I managed to take with my phone. We've had some other submissions from this evening too, so thank you for those!

As well as being a beautiful sunset, it was also really clear across the bay.

I got a last minute message telling me to get to the beach, so I just dropped everything and went. I'm so glad I did!

It has been a gorgeous sunny day so I had hoped that the sunset would be something special and I was not disappointed!
