Two photos in one, in other words superimposed. But I like it!

Up and about early Oy, the reward was worth it.
Was this about two weeks ago, I remember looking down, me in brilliant sunshine and seeing the town covered in mist.

Unusual photo, I like it. You were quick to see the light through the clouds reflected on the water.

Sorry Dave, not for me.

Dave your much better taking shots of birds than fog!
Not for me.

Strangely haunting scene.....! Don't think I would like to be out and about if it was really early! (By myself anyway!)

Very atmospheric...could be the opening scene of a Wes Craven film!
Good photo, anyway, Dave(Oy).

A setting for a spooky film!

Certainly one of the most unusual for a time, it does have a great deal of appeal from the artistic point of view.

Comment by: Johnny on 25th February 2016 at 12:12

You're right A.W.
This would make a good abstract painting...Paynes Grey and a touch of ultramarine for the sky!

Comment by: david on 25th February 2016 at 12:23

I agree.

If I was to paint that scene in my usual water colours - I would have to use a little bit of artistic licence.
There would have to be a tree to the right side with spreading branches. Just enough to add some interest - but not too much to obliterate the unusual and ghostly light! Thats my opinion A.W. and Johnny!

Thanks for the comments all. I thought this one might polarise opinion a bit - it's a good thing :)

Spectacular. I can almost feel the fog prickle my nose.

Comment by: Johnny on 25th February 2016 at 23:39

Go for it vb!
I said earlier that this would make a good abstract painting! Maybe I should have said..impressionist!
A bit like Monet!
Which reminds me...I must research and see if Constable or Turner ever came to Wigan!

Comment by: Vb on 26th February 2016 at 08:24

Agree Johnny! The only Constable to come to Wigan though was the uniformed kind! I did paint "Hazy Wigan"by Mick Byrne quite pleased with it. It's in Jan P a d. The Art Club liked it too!
