Doesn't look a bit like that storybook photo
What a boggy mess......still just think of all the new regrowth in spring.........:-)
Be good to get some of your rain here as my wild Aussie bush garden is dry as.......
All our grass is beige!!! Cheers!!!
Ideal for `Compo` in his wellies, Barry !!
Not a lover of monochrome - this, for me, would be far better in colour. Wouldn`t the reflections be better?
Looks like a welly job there ben
Ernest, I think that if you look again, the picture is not monochrome. The moss on the fallen tree trunks is quite green.
Ernest, it is in colour, just not much of it?
Green and brown monochrome Ernest?Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all on PaD.
Ernest, You should've gone to Specsavers!!
wheres the welly brigade or will they just be stuck in the mud has well
What a mucky photo.
It must be looking in a northerly direction because you cant see any moss on the trees which mostly grows on the northern side of trees.
It`s my laptop, Hugh !! I`ve noticed that the colours are brighter on a PC in Wigan library !1
So would be better colour enhanced, Barry !1
Compliments of the season to all, not forgetting Brian and his crew, but for whom, there`d be no wiganworld.
Hugh, it`s Peter (comment 06:58) who needs to go to Specsavers, his eyesight is that bad that he reads Barry as ben !!
Thanks for your comment Ernest,but if you look a bit closer @ it you will see that it is indeed in COLOUR, what you see is the lower pathway FLOODED by the side of the river Douglas in the lower Plantations!.
A great shot from a nice camera Barry. It has picked out the details nicely. Ernest, this is probably the way the picture came out of the camera and the colours have not been adjusted. Adding more colour may make the shot a little better but not so much that you would notice. Any reflections would not really be enhanced. If you were to selectively use colour curves and levels in photoshop you may be able to enhance the reflections but it would probably look unnatural.
Thanks to everyone who contributes such different types of pictures. Merry Christmas to all Wiganworld P A Day followers. Special thanks to Barry for making all this possible.
I'd like to echo Jean D's comments.
Keep up the great work folks.
Merry Christmas and thank you.
Janice, Hugh and Barry: I can detect just a slight green colour on the two fallen trunks, everything else is monochrome. Are the fallen leaves brown on your screen?
I think my Praktica would have shown more colour !
Ernest! Just admit that you made a Faux Pas
Merry Christmas to you as well,Jean D x
I think all the omments have been made ....Ooops, there goes my wonky "c"key again. I meant,of course, comments! So I will just take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
...By the way,Lizzy down under, your remark about your garden reminded me of the drive across the northern Texas Panhandle,one August about 15 years ago!..But I named the colour Texas Brown.
Sorry, Lizzie,I spelled your name wrongly in my last comment!
We really do need some sunshine and the sooner the better!
A very merry Christmas to brian and his helpers and to all who contribute to Wigan World.Hope 2013 will be a good year for all of us.
Jean in wet and dismal Machynlleth.
that is just how it's like down there at the moment.. to be honest it's a bit eerie !!! have walked through it many times.... definatley a wellie job
Unfortunately the powers that be charge far to much for water rates here so we have to let our grass remain unwatered as we have such a big block ( quarter acre ) we just couldn't keep it going as there are 5 adults in the house at the moment...
The native plans know what to do they just shut down and go into dormancy until the next rain...... Very clever..... Cheers!!
Whoops I should have put Brian Ron and Team instead of Barry. Sorry
