The softness of this shot is, strangely, pleasing to my eye, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Then I am a contented snapper Ray
A nice mournful song to go with this image...
Bill Phillips: One of my favourite Dr Hook songs. Written by Shel Silverstein who was a great lyricist

It gives a mysterious look. Almost ghostly. Love the view.
Bill Phillips: This is Morecambe Astrid. A strange northern seaside place
A wonderful dream shot Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Richard
Wonderful scene Bill i love your soft treatment of it....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Peter. This is Morecambe the town who's name the much loved comedian Eric Morecambe took his name. (Well Eric Bartholomew doesn't sound as good). There is a statue of him on the sea front

Other-worldly, Bill
Bill Phillips: Well it is up north in Morecambe Lisl

Not bad - quite atmospheric

Oh, it could be raining again in Droitwich - I hope Chris doesn't see this twiddleage!
Bill Phillips: This is far worse it is Morecambe...Michael Shaw territory
A mournful song, indeed (new to me) and hard to stop listening to. WOW.

And, like others, I find the image quite pleasing to the eye.
Bill Phillips: One of my favourite Dr Hook songs Ginnie. One of the great songs written by Shel Silverstein who wrote great lyrics

I gave my spectacles a good clean but it still looks blurred.
Bill Phillips: Thank goodness or I would be worried about your eyesight

t's a pity that I'm not allowed to listen to this wonderful song (s. Ginnie's comment).
Bill Phillips: It is a favourite of mine. I am not sure if you would like it

Looks like the setting for a horror film, Bill. You can almost hear the dramatic music building up for the shock.
Bill Phillips: Well it is Morecambe Pauline
This looks like an old colourized shot - very cool.
Bill Phillips: Well it is a mixture of a colour and mono version of the picture Mary
Morecambe is paradise compared to where you live Bill.
Bill Phillips: Twaddle
Like an old postcard, Bill. Happy days, and sad days spent in Morecambe.
Bill Phillips: Only ever been once Frank. That was mainly to see dear old Eric's statue grin
I like the softness of this image Bill
Bill Phillips: Thanks Janet. So do I smile
I rather like the finish on this Bill, a judge would hate that aura round the roofs of the buildings and I would sit and grin quietly to myself when he said so smile
Bill Phillips: That's not a aura Brian it is pollution

I am not long back from a cycle ride to Morecambe, your picture makes it look more attractive than its reality. It is sadly very run down.

BTW someone tried to saw Eric Morecambe's statue's leg off, I think it is being repaired at the moment.
Bill Phillips: I read about that and I think it also made the national news on the BBC. It was pretty run down when we were there 10 years ago. Sad really
never mind twaddle, wheres my fry up.I will be stopping on the second services on the M5 in May you can buy us a very expensive breakfast there.
Bill Phillips: No point in stopping there, they don't have anything edible. Despite insulting Droitwich I would be happy for you to pull off the M5 at Junction 5 for a decent cup of Yorkshire tea and a bacon buttie at ours.....assuming we are here on the day.

Aye its grim lad. Its also a fine photo, the blurryness has worked in your favour.
Bill Phillips: Cheers Mike. It worked better than I hoped.....not quite sure what I did though grin
The song goes with the scene, Bill - nice one.
Bill Phillips: Cheers Tom!
Rather atmospheric Bill
Bill Phillips: You can't beat a bit of atmosphere John
completely artificial, Bill
Bill Phillips: Sure is JC, but you wouldn't want to see the real thing

As George Bernard Shaw said, "You see things; and you say 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why did I dream that? I must give up the cheese at bedtime."
Bill Phillips: This is very profound Chad. Cheese has a lot to answer for
This is such a fab capture Bill
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ronky. Pleased you like it

That's odd. I'm sure I commented on this earlier. I asked where it was but now I know it's Morecambe. Looks just the sort of place to get proper fish & chips and mushy peas.
excellent shot, really liking the scene here and the clouds set a sombre mood
