An amazing atmospheric picture! I love the gloomy, grey and threatening sky and the effectively captured glimpses of sunlight between the clouds caught on the grass! (I'm waxing quite poetic,aren't I??)
.....Where was this picture made?

Great shot!

Lovely photo.
Mick. Why would it not be green? For the whole time we were there in October rain poured down on it? Ever the optimist, I was a bit off the mark when I booked a trip hoping for an Indian Summer!

I like these rural pics.

Comment by: Jod on 25th November 2013 at 14:18

Wrong again, Garry, just like you were with yesterday's comments.
The mast is on Winter Hill, some 100m higher than Rivington Pike and some 3 miles walk away.
We're still waiting for one of your photos!

Jod, photo a day is here every day, why should i go out in the cold to take them, when others do it!
Thanks for askin.

Comment by: Garry on 25th November 2013 at 17:19

Jod's telling Ann where the photos been taken?????

Comment by: Lizzie down under on 25th November 2013 at 18:40

Thank you Anne....I forgot I asked before....foggy brain disorder....
It looks stunning on full screen iPad would make a great wallpaper...Ta again...cheers!!

Garry, two people asked where it was taken, I was naming roads instead of using a vague road number, trying to be helpful!
If you don't take photos yourself, don't criticise others so readily.
I notice you didn't admit your errors.

Comment by: Garry on 26th November 2013 at 08:41

Most of the time I'm right, and this time I am...many thanks Jod.

Comment by: Garry on 26th November 2013 at 15:10

Yes Jod at 21:48, but it's up to Anne to tell them and not you...after all, it's her photo not yours!
