You was lucky to catch that duck in the shot Roy a few seconds later and it would have been gone.


Comment by Anne on 11th February 2011 at 09:41
Wouldn't it be nice if there was a link where you could purchase and download the photo. There have been a few I would have love to have on my walls, and the money raised could go to a local charity/


Comment by Margaret Wall on 11th February 2011 at 14:43
Anne, I don't know if I have breached any copyright or not but I don't think so.
The fact is that there are lots of photos on Wigan World that I think are so lovely that I want to save them for my own personal perusal. I have opened a file entitled 'Nostalgia' and it's so easy to put the photos I want in there.
From there, you can easily print them out on photographic paper and as long as they are not used commercially, I don't think I am doing anything unlawful.
You could of course still give money to charity.
Good luck!

It looks as if Wigan's answer to Nessie could be out there somewhere,Roy.


Comment by RH on 11th February 2011 at 17:46
This photograph was taken very early morning last summer before the sun had burned off the mist.
As the photographer, I own the copyright, as does anyone who takes a photograph and displays it. Be it on a private or public domain.Anyone wishing to download a copy should contact the photographer for permission, either via this site, or Wigan World, it's just a matter of courtesey. As I don't send my best photographs to any public site, permission will be granted.

Dont be so serious Roy its not a oil painting thats took the skill and talent of the artist to create this is only a digital photo took with a digital camera that can do most of the work its self.


Comment by zoe on 11th February 2011 at 20:30
nice photo, as for getting permission to copy/download the photo i really dont see why anyone would have a problem, its the internet lol anyone can copy any photo they like at any time with the click of a button, if people dont want others to take them then it would be a lil silly to put them on the net.... (not having a go btw just stating the obvious)


Comment by David on 11th February 2011 at 21:42
Anyone can't 'copy any photo they like', lots of people have been successfully prosecuted for copyright infringement - and anyway, common courtesy would suggest that permission be sought.


Comment by John Morris on 11th February 2011 at 22:36
I have to disagree with Mick, even with a digital camera this photograph took a lot of skill. It might not be the same skill as a painting but it is no less valid and it also took a lot of effort to be in position at this time of day. As Roy says, it is a matter of courtesy to ask permission, or you could of course drag yourself out of bed before it comes light, on a cold misty morning and have a go yourself. Most importantly Roy I love the photograph.


Comment by Roy H on 12th February 2011 at 16:25
Hi Mick. The photo'was taken as 'RAW' when the camera just takes the photograph, but does not process it.

The processing is done by the photographer.
