    Hello all, we arrived yesterday for a quick break and really enjoyed ourselves! One small problem with the trams off for a while due to an incident i think near bispham, never mind we took our grandson on various trams later including the heritage ship one and enjoyed the illuminations both ways.

    Liz - it's lovely tonight. Just been for a walk up to the very area you see above. A bit on the windy side and not too busy being a weekday (hence South Pier closed) but pleasant all the same with a pair of illuminated trams out and about. My fave time is the sunset hour so tend to do my evening walk then... when it's not raining of course!

    Could do with some rain to clean it, that seems to wash the salt off it and clears it. :)

    Thanks guys, appreciated. Pity it has been so blurry all day long, ah well! Hoping for better weather soon :)

    The camera was a bit dirty throughout the day as there was some strong wind at times so that combined with sunlight would have resulted in the orangey picture as the sun is getting a little lower in the sky so there are times late afternoon where it would be shining almost directly into the camera creating a distorted orange hued picture.

    Further to my last post: if you look at the 'pictures' tab, it's not yellow all the time. It probably depends on where the sun is. If it's shining towards the camera and the lens is a bit misty, it probably makes it look more yellow. I don't think them fiddling with it would improve it IMO.

    user68407570: It's yellow because sunshine is yellow, and it's ALWAYS sunny in Blackpool in the daytime! Seriously, it depends how its colour balance has been set up. Skyline should be able to log in to it and change it remotely, if you would like to point it out to them.

    Why is this camera so yellow during the day? :)

    Stanley Park (in Blackpool) has won the UK's best park award 2019, I heard on TV tonight.

    It's a lovely evening, barely a cloud in the sky, calm and a distinct chill in the air. Just went for a walk and tons of people headed for the fireworks which alas cannot be seen as they take place out of shot behind where the camera is located.

    Ahh....'tis working again - and the comments box has reappeared. Who pulled out the modem plug, then?....Or were they filming an advert for that payday loan company, stopped all movement in Blackpool and then found the battery was flat on the mobile phone?
