Photographs For New Blog

We have been driving to various places today and photographing some of the settings which are in my latest book — Checkmate (not yet released).
The whole blog is about beautiful Cumbria — the Lakes District National Park, plus the fringes within the Furness area of Cumbria. I intend quoting from Checkmate's pages to go with each photograph.
Today we visited Roanhead with its sand dunes, and view towards the high fells and in the far distance the mountains of the Lake District, including Coninston Old Man.
We also photographed the Shipyards at Barrow and the coast at Bardsea.
This photograph is of Roanhead, a great place for families with its Nature Reserve, sand dunes and long stretch of beach.

The book will shortly be released by Magpies Nest Publishing where it can be ordered post free in the UK. Once released it can be ordered from any bookstore including Amazon.

Checkmate is the third book of a trilogy — Book one, Awakening Love (DESIRE in the USA) Book two is Seduction By Design.

Congratulations on the book Gladys, and looking forward to more pictures. I love the Lake District.

Roan Head is one of my favorite places to visit with its combination of sand and shells, and sand dunes with high vantage points.

There's also a small nature reserve and tea hut.

Lovely place because not many people go there.

My other favorite beach is on South Walney between the sandstone pillars where the island is at its narrowest - lots of lovely sea weed, barnacles and rock pools. Also deserted!
