Arnside 2

When the tide goes out completely the whole bay here becomes a treacherous area of sand and quicksand too dangerous to be traversed without the aid of an experienced guide. It is where a group of Chinese cockle pickers drowned a few years ago after being cut of by the tide, which races in over the undulating sandbanks. They had been dropped off by an unscrupulous gang-master who failed to properly brief them on the dangers of the bay

@Marjolein: middle of the afternoon :) What looks like the low sun is more reflections on shallow water and sand. If you look up to the left side you can see a spit of land and a power station

Treacherous but also very beautiful, especially in this kind of light.

A gorgeous black and white image with a beautiful view. The light is spectacular. That is a sad story. It does sound like a dangerous place.
