If you are visiting with the family then Cleveley’s Promenade is home to the Mythical Coastline Sculpture Trail, ideal for selfies and arty shots.
For more arty inspiration take the kids out on the sands to build sandcastles and make beach sculptures with the rocks and seaweed. The open beach, Jubilee Skate Park and splash pad are also great for action shots. If its animals you want then Farmer Parrs is a good one for cuddly animal photos and if you visit in the spring you’ll get the chance to feed chicks and lambs – always a popular one to share on Facebook.
If birdlife sparks your interest then take a trip out to Wyre Estuary Country Park, an area of Special Scientific Interest in terms of migrating and feeding birds. The murmuration formations over the Estuary and Morecambe Bay are truly spectacular if you visit during the autumn. The new tower at Rossall Point is also perfect for wildlife photography, providing both height and shelter from the elements; and the view at sunset across the bay is a moment to capture.
If architectural and still life photography is more your style then head north to the historical fishing port of Fleetwood, with its Art Deco Marine Hall, three light houses, Victorian market and bustling marina (including the Freeport Shopping Outlet). At low tide the sand banks of the estuary reveal the skeletons of old fishing boats and the Knott End passenger ferry harks back to a bygone era as it shuttles back and forth across the mouth of the River Wyre.
Look out for dolphins in Morecambe Bay and don’t forget your camera!
