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.

I couldn't help but stop on my journey home last night and take this photo. The sunset was amazing and the bay looked awesome.

What I didn't realise at first was the little sundog to the left but managed to take a couple of great photos of it. A sundog is the rainbow colour you see as sunlight refracts off ice particles in the upper atmosphere.

Last night was a beautiful evening and during a walk along the promenade I was treated to a really beautiful sunset over the hills of the Lake District.

There are a few photos from the same sunset as the sun slowly passed below the highest hill to view.

I think I over zoomed on this one slightly, but it was worth it for the colours.
