Day’s End

October 12, 2008 at 18:22 | Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments


I don’t know about where you are but today in Barrow was a lovely autumn day, mild and still. Towards the end of the afternoon I took the Nikoff for a walk down by the docks on Barrow Island, partly to see just where I could get to. (signs saying “No Admittance to Unauthorised Persons” don’t constitute let or hindrance if adjacent to an open road or an open gate; razor wire is grounds for judicious withdrawal.) I got some nice pictures, because the light was just about perfect.

On the way back I couldn’t help but be struck by the way the sun was going down in a sky not rain-bearing but not cloudless either. Here we are looking west, of course: over the dredged part of he Walney Channel with the tide just past the ebb, over Tummer Hill Marshes, to the far side of Walney where that island is at its narrowest. The line of buildings silhouetted in the distance is the developed strip between Carr Lane and Biggar Bank.

The little fishing boat, of course, makes the scene perfect.
