Sunny Blackpool – Sunday 5th Oct. 08

After all the rain yesterday its a very clear and warm sunny day in Blackpool. There is little haze so there are clear views round the coast from the Prom. All these pictures were taken with a 400 zoom so they look closer than they are. Barrow is over twenty miles away accross Morecambe Bay.

the navel ship yards at Barrow in Furness.

part of the wind farm in the sea near Barrow. Apparently each one of these is as high as Blackpool tower but to the naked eye they are not easy to spot from Blackpool.

further east around the coast the lake district peaks can clearly be seen accross Morecambe Bay.

looking south from here, over the top of the North Pier can be seen the gas platform close to Southport.

And further round we can just pick out the Snowdon Range in Noth Wales. these must be about 60 or 70 miles away. again this is taken with the zoom and what you see is just the bit that sticks up above the horizon.

    Some impressive shots. What is the power of the zoom you use?
