Excellent shot! That's some beautiful lighting. I think I've been on this on this road or at least on one near it. I definitely remember seeing the signs for Cockermouth. :D

Very nice! Looks almost identical to a scene on Salt Spring Island B.C. on route to the ferry terminal if anyone has been there before.

Am I the only one who noticed the sign that says, "cockermouth"? IDK about yall, but that me laugh! I would SO steal that sign! ;)

Nice shot BTW.

We're quite used to that name over here, and I don't think it strikes anyone as funny. Beautiful shot by the way Jonathan.

No - it's because we are used to the name.
