About

Hi, and welcome to our web site.

We are Carol and Gordon Watson, keen amateur photographers and walkers, living in Kirkham near Preston, Lancashire in the UK.  We have both enjoyed photography for many years, but until recently we only found time for taking pictures whilst on holiday.  However after Carol retired in 2015, we decided to try to get a bit more serious about our photography, get out more and photograph some of the wonderful scenery and interesting locations here in the North West of England.  Gordon now uses a Canon EOS 100D camera and Carol an Olympus OMD-EM10.

We are passionate about the British countryside, and living close to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales means we have a wealth of stunning scenery almost on our doorstep.  We would also like to record some of the less obvious locations within Lancashire, our home county.

We’ve called the web-site Fotospot because what we plan is to record some of our own favourite spots for photography, giving details of where it is, where to park and how to get to the specific location.   There will be some galleries of our photos, and if you see something you like, there should be some links to a blog post giving details about each location.

So we hope the site will be both useful and interesting, growing over time as we add more locations.  Obviously we will concentrate on areas close to our home in the North West of England, but we will try to cover other areas as well as we do like our holidays!

Thanks for visiting our website – we hope you find something you like.  Please post a comment if you wish to get in touch or have any suggestions for improvements.
