The view over the fields of West Lancashire with towards the flatter lands near the coast.
Storm clouds overhead but a calmer and brighter scene in the far distance.
VIEWS OF STANDISH
Looking out over the fields that surround the village of Standish in Wigan as the late afternoon sun starts to set.
Lovely and calm on this image, but as ever, the storm clouds are never too far away as the following image demonstrates.
The country lanes that criss-cross West Lancashire have lots of small villages and other places of interest
This image was taken in summer in the small village of Bickerstaffe.
BIG BLUE SKY
One of the most common sights in the northwest are angry clouds and rainstorms, but every now and then we get a beautiful warm summer's day.
This image shows the clear blue skies overhead and the lovely lush greener of the fields and woodland.
