Taken from Birkrigg Common, close to its border with the ancient woodland of Sea Wood, this photograph looks across Morecambe Bay at a time when the tide was receding.  Shortly afterwards the extensive sands of this bay would be revealed until the rapidly flowing tide would once again fill the bay and travel beyond up the estuaries of the rivers Crake, Leven and Kent.  Across the bay may be seen the two advanced gas cooled reactor powered power stations which are located at Heysham on the Lancashire coast.
