Maryport harbour in Cumbria, where we watched this tiny fishing vessel coming home through the Solway Firth, engine straining a bit against the current.

Cloud patterns throughout the day’s cycling trip – along the ancient Roman fortress route from Maryport to Allonby and Silloth, and eventually on to Carlisle – were as spectacular as those pictured here.

There’s a particularly special quality of light around the Solway Firth, whether looking across it from Cumbria to Scotland or vice versa. The lighthouse in this scene adds to the emotional power of the scene for me
