Fantastic pictures. Amazing colours.


Comment by Maureen Andrews nee McGovern on 22nd November 2011 at 09:27
Pretty as a picture Harry.


Comment by dirty harry on 22nd November 2011 at 11:20
its ok but the pictures look over exposed . it must be my eyes. and why walk through the woods with a camera and umbrella?


Comment by Catherine on 22nd November 2011 at 12:00
Lovely photos. Makes me homesick.


Comment by elaine on 22nd November 2011 at 13:54
OMG! It´s so beautiful. Haven´t been to the Plantations in over 40 years! I don´t live in the UK and we have sun everyday - I feel so home-sick. Thank you, Thank you


Comment by Janice on 22nd November 2011 at 17:28
Always one killjoy! Pictures may be over exposed but they are still beautiful - and why not walk through the woods with an umbrella and a camera? There are no rules about what conditions pnhotos can be taken under. My motto is see it - shoot it!!!


Comment by maria on 22nd November 2011 at 18:54

Comment by Gareth Fairhurst on 22nd November 2011 at 19:33
Fantastic pictures


Comment by Dave Roscoe on 22nd November 2011 at 21:39
Overexposed is in the eye of the beholder. Diffused light like this tends to saturate colours and however there don't appear to be any clipped blacks to me; meaning not over exposed.

Nice work Harry; I enjoy your pictures


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 22nd November 2011 at 22:09
Janice...I agree with all you said..lovely pictures Harry.....brightens up an otherwise dull day.


Comment by JOHN HIGHAM on 22nd November 2011 at 23:03
HI FRED. WAS YOU IN ST GEORGES CHOIR IN THE LATE SIXTIES. DID YOU HAVE A BROTHER CALLED FRED (BRILLIANT ATHLETE TAUGHT ME CROSS COUNTRY RUNNING I WAS ONLY A KID AT THE TIME ABOUT 12). WAS HE IN ST GEORGES BOYS BRIGADE AND CHOIR. IF SO I WAS IN BOTH THE CHOIR AND THE BRIGADE.WE LIVED IN VAUGHN ST. IN JIMMY WYNNS OLD HOUSE, BACK TO BACK WITH YOUR MUM AND DAD WHO LIVED IN TURNER ST.I SEEM TO REMEMBER AT SOME POINT YOUR MUM MADE US ALL NEW CASSOCKS FOR THE CHOIR AROUND ABOUT THE TIME THEY ENROLLED GIRLS INTO THE CHOIR. DUE TO THE FACT THERE WAS ONLY ME AND MAURICE TATE LEFT IN THE BOYS SECTION.HAPPY DAYS.


Comment by JOHN HIGHAM on 22nd November 2011 at 23:28
HI DAVE.
NICE TO SEE YOUR COMMENTS AGAIN.
WHEN WE WERE KIDS.
THE TREES IN THE PLANTS WERE COVERED IN SOOT. THE ONLY COLOUR IN THERE WAS THE YELLOW BROOK AND THE DOUGIE, (COLOUR DEPENDANT ON THE BLEACH WORKS MIX OF THE DAY.)
HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED.( FOR THE BETTER COLOUR WISE)
NICE TO BE IN TOUCH AGAIN.
HIGHAMY.

Comment by sania on 23rd November 2011 at 07:30
Wow! Harry!Thats really awesome.


Comment by Harry C. on 23rd November 2011 at 09:00
Thanks for the interest and comments everyone. Sorry I'm late I've been busy.

dirty harry, I carry a camera, 'two'
to take photographs, and I am not the one with the umbrella, but I do thank you for your interest.


Comment by Joe G on 23rd November 2011 at 09:29
Super photos Harry ,Ignore negative comments,they have not got a clue. They should get out more.


Comment by Harry C. on 23rd November 2011 at 16:46
Thanks Joe G. I don't mind negative comments if they're constructive, I
like to try and make it interesting for people who like to see what Wigan and surrounding districts are like, and the collage of four photos of people walking in the woods gets the idea across, and saves three days for someone to submit their photos. Cheers H.


Comment by Deb on 23rd November 2011 at 21:48
Dirty Harry or should it be David Bailey? Why wouldn't any keen photographer walk through the woods with their camera? Surely a place as beautiful as this deserves to be captured at every opportunity. Correct exposure may be defined as an exposure that achieves the effect the photographer intended, as you were not the photographer in this case how could you know what that was? The comments on this site from people who don't live in Wigan anymore prove that photo's like this are really appreciated. Lovely photographs, keep up the good work.


Comment by Dave Roscoe on 2nd December 2011 at 23:13
Great work harry. I look forward to more. John Higham hope to see more of your's posted soon. Great way to reconnect with people and places, since I don't get back to Wigan much these days.

Keep up the good work.


Comment by Harry C. on 3rd December 2011 at 14:38
To.Dave Roscoe.
Thanks Dave, if you're the one I'm thinking of you're a little younger than me. I'll try to keep you in touch with what goes on around Wigan. Cheers H.
