A different side of Cumbria

Many people think of mountains and dales, woods and lakes in the Lake District but Cumbria is much more than the national park. Having been to Barrow-in-Furness for shopping I paid a visit to Askam-in-Furness a few miles north up the coast.

With the best will in the world this isn't the prettiest part of Cumbria but for a photographer it's a great place full of possibility. The weather didn't help the scenic qualities but made grainy black and white an obvious choice.

I think the sunsets here would be particularly good but I wasn't able to get back before we had moved house to the far corner of the county and it's now too far away so this is all I am likely to get.
