Mick, this is without doubt your best P a D so far, beautifully captured the scene.

Dramatic sky . Shadows to the east . Adlington in the distance . Great Hill beyond .
Makes me think of AE Houseman . 'What are those blue remembered hills ,
What spires , what farms are those ?'
Grand photo Mick.

That's quite a photo! Looks as if those clouds are saying to the farmhouse, "I'm coming to get you!". Gives me the shivers but I like it.

Wow, good shot

I though it had been 'enhanced' but it is still lovely.

The sky looks like it might have been painted by Bob Ross.

Touched up or not that’s a cracking photo Mick.

You can get arrested for that you know. :)

Lizzie Locket you're right there - Bob does some strange clouds. I bet he's up there on a cloud painting them!

Great composition and exposure Mick. A bit of Photoshop work on that I think. I remember in the black and white days of photography if I was printing a picture in the darkroom of a view with a sky that was a bit overexposed and had no detail I would burn it in by cupping my hands just to let the enlarger lamp shine on the printing paper where the sky area was and produce a more dramatic sky. I did occasionally overdo the procedure and there is a perfect example of this on a photo of Greenough Street in Street Scenes in Album.

Wow, those clouds look angry. Wouldn't like to be in the forthcoming storm!!!!
