I remember the 'Flash, with such movement, on the day that my uncle landed a 2lb tench from beneath its high bank - A lovely fish it was, Mike. He'd set his float 'deep', and then fished on top of groundbait made from stale bread. A great Photo from yourself. Thanks.

The gun metal clouds are majestic and the sun enamelled lake looks almost like a rippled sandy estuary at low tide.
A grand picture Mike.

Loving the pic Lavino looks amazing wish I was there

I lived in Wigan for 36 years and never saw this beautiful stretch of water. My loss.
I’ve always found the rippling sound of water so relaxing and now back home on the Pembrokeshire coast, I enjoy this daily.
Magnificent photo Mike, thank you.

The In-between both night and day,
Perhaps to kneel , perhaps to pray ,
The time when thoughts just run way ,
To a place we call our own

In that place we can be still ,
Bring back faces we truly will,
Children’s voices now unheard ,
have all gone silent without a word ,
They lie at home in safe warm beds
Their day complete their memories fed
Allowing dreams to unfold instead
a place only they can see .

So what this dream before me now ,
The waters edge is still somehow ,
There’s still some light but darkness too,
The In-between... a dream ....or true?

Well caught.

Great looking photo, gunmetal is surely the true description. The Sea Cadets used to have their boating excersiging here as well as some minor races. I enjoyed the big oars and especially the kayaks, good memories.
Walter Somers was our skip.
