A new photo book shows off the stunning power of Mother Nature in Morecambe Bay.

‘Tidelands’ by Bolton-le-Sands artist and photographer Debbie Yare is described as an intimate, affectionate, and occasionally humorous portrait of Morecambe Bay.

Debbie began to take photos of the bay and its surroundings in September 2012 and her journey took over her life for the next two years.

Her aim was to rediscover and photograph the landscapes of her childhood and ‘Tidelands’ is the result.

She said:“I began by photographing the vast open spaces on the bay at low tide, where I stumbled upon objects and structures emerging from the mudflats..

“As daylight became twilight, I photographed subtle changes in light, colour and texture; and watched as tides came and went.

“I explored pathways, promenades, and salt marshes; recording things of interest along the way. In doing so I began to ask deeper questions about our relationship with the landscape, and about what it means to have a sense of place.”
