Another good 'un featuring a member of the Skitters ensemble, Ozy. You really should choose the best twelve images of the lads, so that The Skitters Calendar for 2018, can be 'rattled' off in time for Christmas. Keep the photos coming. Thanks.

We were born before the wind,
also younger than the sun.
Ere the bonnie bike was won,
as we rode into the mystic.

..apologies to a certain Irishman.

Sounds like Yeats GW but I don't think it is.

Poet, GW's quoting the well known Dutch supermarket entrepreneur, Van Morrison.

Ah!and here's me thinking it was the proprietor of the wine lodge.

Was this taken in the Fog, I suspect so.

I saw Colin James perform 'Into The Mystic' recently at the Bridgewater Hall. He was very good.

wow brilliant what a flash from the past this is. Mi dad used to keep pigs on the first pen on the right just before where this is taken. the big conìcrete bridge over the brook at the bottom. I've seen a lot of skitters photos in recent times and imo it's been spoiled by too much 'husbandry'. All the trees are the same size and too crowded imo. What ever happened to 'natural' tree husbandry , like around bommy night ;-) LOL
