Not Missing the Point

Photos from three consecutive weekend’s walks around Jenny Brown’s.

This first set are a bit odd, because there’s plenty of blue sky over the Bay, but it’s grey inland and the light is very flat.

Must have been a Sunday morning walk, which is generally when TBH and I chose to have a wander together.

We finished across the sands, which we didn’t often do, and they weren’t quite as firm and dry as we’d anticipated, but firm enough, fortunately – no quicksand drama to report! Hard to tell in the photos, but the Coniston Fells had a covering of snow.

…on the other hand, was clearly from a late afternoon walk; the warm light is a giveaway.

I remember this walk well. Unusually, I was on my own, I don’t remember why.

I finished across the sands again and, even close in shore, being out there on a winter afternoon as the light faded and the lights around The Bay came on, felt quite wild and special.

Finally, one photo from another rainy walk around the point. On our regular walks we’d watched Quicksand Pool undercut the high far bank of the channel. We’d often hear the clump and splash of a section falling away. It was interesting to see, each week, how the bank and the channel had changed.

  1. Always enjoy a walk along the coast there. I like the idea of walking out onto the sands while the light fades and the lights come on – not too far out though!
