Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 25th April, 2009)
Time for a Chat
Always stop here to have a glug from my water bottle.
You've captured the moment Dave.
Nice photo Dave.
I was talking to the woman who lives they lat week and she was telling me the house was originally built tp look over the old river Douglas lock.
Thats why you only the see the back of it from the canal.
Also the canal was built with only one lock at first the one closest to the railway the one next to the house came later when the Douglas lock stopped being used and the side bay window was added to the house.
Mmm... lovely misty light, and the people make the shot. Nice one Dave :)
that is one nice photo good shot dave!!!!
Just brilliant . You can pass a scene hundreds of times with nothing to see, then A-Presto ,and the lighting, and everything is just there for the taking .Magic .
Lovely colours. What filter did you use, Dave ?
That's a nice a pic' I Haven't been there for years. Cheers H.
Thanks for your comments,Mark,Mick,Dave,harri,Ron D,Alan;the photo is raw without any filters and after more than 30 years of amateur clicking I have reached the stage when I can spot a good subject as it comes along.Do you remember the cottage further up by the weir, Mick.
Yes Dave I remember the cottage and I remember the lad who live there walking in to the canal and drowning.
There was another cottage in between the Navi canal bridge and the viaduct railway bridge as well.
Then there was a white cottage almost underneath the viaduct on the dean wood side and even one up on a hill in the middle of dean wood.
Thanks for all the information about this neck of the woods,Mick..and thanks to Anna,my daughter in Yorkshire who also tunes in to wiganworld.Take a stroll down there Harry C it's a lovely area that has changed little.
Dave do you remember Gaffy Yard in Shevy ?
