I am headed to Lytham St. Annes in Lancashire UK for about 9 days on Monday. It's a business trip, but there will be time to shoot. (No, I don't play golf! ;) )

I know it's a seaside resort, do any of the UK POTN'ers have a tip or two as to what may be interesting?

I like landscape and nature photography the best, but am open to any ideas really.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions! :D

Lytham St. Annes is an old style 'genteel' resort, but Blackpool just up the coast is much more brash and plenty of opportunities for 'classic' England seaside images. Worth a day trip if you get chance and then wonder around all the main tourist areas.

The tower, the piers, the fun fair (Pleasure Beach), the trams - all adds up to lots of photo ops. Whether it falls in to the "landscape and nature photography" fold is another story ;)

Blackpool is a bit like Vegas but without the class! Can you imagine :lol:

LL - It sounds like a mix of urban/whatever! That works for me. I just love to explore! Thank you!

Now that brings back memories!

Did you get to see Blackpool yet? Does "a bit like Vegas but without the class" now mean anything to you?

LOL... no Blackpool yet. My business schedule has kept me very busy locally. But yesterday was Club day in Lytham and I had a blast - as you already have seen! :D
