Sunset at Ayr

sunset_at_ayr.5liovh5rrr8kcog4o0cc8ko88.6ylu316ao144c8c4woosog48w.th

Last evening on our holiday to Ayr and the sunset was beautiful, had known that the weather looked good and jumped into the car at the last minute to make sure I got a good “seat”.  When I arrived a family had an even better idea and had bought fish and chips, using the beach grasses as their seats to enoy a perfect Scottish Sunset – what a great Idea!

This evening photograph of Ayrshire’s Coastline was our goodbye for now but hoping to return..next time will remember to buy the Fish and Chips too!

Tree of Life

Edenwood Mill an old derelict and abandoned Mill in Ramsbottom, one of many built in the Rossendale valley for weaving, bleaching and printing of cloth.

I was struck by its contrasts, inside dark and gloomy the glass in the windows long gone but nature is not so far away. Through the open window the morning sun shone through the soft light revealing the details of the mill that had been lingering in the shadows.

Edenwood Mill also know as Rose Mill was first constructed in 1801 for weaving, Printing and Bleaching but has been empty since 2001

Churchyard Gates

I visited this local North Manchester Church and was struck by the contrasts of the place. I photographed the Church from the graveyard gates which were a little overgrown but the gates almost framed this pretty church view. I have limited the colours in this picture to sepia tones to keep the scene simple. I hope to visit again soon as there is so much to photograph.
