ANOTHER MORNING ON NEW CUT LANE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1020488(1)Another view of the lane that cuts across the moss behind where I live heading inland. Many a car has finished up in this ditch due to driver inattention. I love the misty light in the mornings here, probably caused by  temperature inversion on this low lying land. The road seems to roll out to infinity in the blinding light.

TWO VIEWS OF NEW CUT LANE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTINGS

P1100202(1) P1100203(1)

New Cut Lane is a road that leaves Southport, where I live, and goes inland across the moss, which is low lying arable land behind the sand dunes of  the coast. It was a road I took to go to work in Kirkby, North Liverpool, each morning either in the car or on my bike. Starting the sixteen mile cycle on mornings like this with the sun low on the horizon was a pleasure. Coming back was harder, as you cycled into the prevailing wind across the exposed, flat land. There were other hazards, like facing oncoming cars overtaking at speed across the straight, but undulating road. On one occasion I was faced with two tons of oncoming BMW being driven by the Company doctor – a man purportedly looking after my health. Fortunately he missed.
