Commander Forsberg and Morecambe Bay

Where do you go to take your photographs? Some photographers may look down on you if you say two yards away from the car in a car park. This may be because the more effort that you put into your photography then the more you get out of it. It may also be that if you walk some distance you are much more likely to get a different photo from many other photographs taken by many other photographers.

These photos were taken two yards away from the car in a car park on Morecambe promenade. I am not embarrassed as life is too short to miss the obvious views. You will save time if youake an ordnance survey map and look for their viewing points. They are marked for good reason so take your camera there. This car park at the Battery has a memorial to Commander Forsberg OBE. If you take a look you can get the details of the plaque. It tells you that he was a great long distance swimmer and among other things he swam across Morecambe Bay 29 times. From both photos you can get a sense of this wonderful achievement.

Happy snapping
